COMMUNISM TOUR

We'll drive you to the outskirts of Krakow to visit the model Communist city & steelworks - Nowa Huta. You'll experience the wonders of this one-of-a-kind place, including its monumental Central Square, wide avenues, residential units, steelworks' headquarters, a Soviet tank and an impressive Solidarity church. Not only will you discover how the average Pole lived, worked and played under Communism, but stories and anecdotes from your laid-back local guide will bring the "good old days" back to life!
