MEMORIES FROM THE TIMES OF COMMUNIST POLAND

We invite you to make a trip around Nowa Huta that is filled with the spirit of the period of communist Poland. Designed symmetrically on a semicircle plan as a separate structure independent of Kraków – along with a huge metallurgical complex – it was the pride of the communist authorities controlled by the Soviet Union. Today, as a slightly altered district of Kraków, Nowa Huta still attracts many tourists who want to see ‘a picture-perfect socialist city’.

The trip on the trail of communism is an opportunity to see the ‘living history’ of the former communist rule, which is commemorated only by the architecture of the old city that has survived until today. Tourists who want to see this place for themselves can choose either of the two available trip options: a 2.5-hour trip or a 4-hour trip. The shorter option, called the ‘COMMUNISM TOUR’, covers the key locations of Nowa Huta and a stopover at the Stylowa restaurant, in which a free drink is served.
