Krakow: Nowa Huta Guided Tour
Discover the secrets of this communist development and learn all about the realities of everyday life in communist Poland.
DescriptionCan you imagine sharing your bathroom with a fish for a week? Or standing ten hours in a queue to buy toilet paper? Or simply waiting in front of a closed shop until 1:00 PM, with a terrible hangover, before you could buy a beer? Poland after the Second World War was one of the communist countries where terror and sorrow was mixed with the comic and the absurd. On this tour you will explore Nowa Huta, the city which was a communist paradise, and at the same time a fortress, prepared to defend its citizens in case of an attack on the Soviet Bloc from the West. And it is here where you have a unique chance to see modern houses and squares built according to plans by Leonardo da Vinci. You'll also experience the taste of vodka and herring, admire the size of the Steelworks Complex, and see the church that was a symbol of freedom.
