What to Expect
Your tour begins with convenient pick-up from your hotel in Krakow. You’ll commence your tour in an authentic Trabant vehicle, the iconic car of East Germany. Travel to Nowa Huta, one of the world’s two fully-planned Socialist Realist cities, known as Stalin’s gift to Krakow. Track history through the architecture here, much of it driven by symbolism and ideology. Thanks in part to a campaign to build a Catholic church in the city, Nowa Huta later became a site of Poland’s resistance movement. If you wish, you may upgrade to a 4-hour visit which includes a guided tour of a private museum and a memorable trip to a communist-era restaurant. Visit a communist-style apartment, sample pickled cucumbers, and try your hand at driving the Trabant for a truly transporting experience.

Really good tour with a lot of knowledge and a good humour. She was really friendly and could basically answer any question about Nowa Huta. She took us back in time and showed us a great time. I can recommend this tour to anybody.

My daughter suggested doing this instead of the more routine tourist stuff in Krakow. I’m so glad I did. What a hoot and our guide was very thorough in giving us the whole communist experience while being highly entertaining.
