Highlights
  • Discover the history of Nowa Huta, a model suburb from the communist era
  • Travel back in time as you ride in an original Trabant vehicle
  • Explore Nowa Huta as a feat of architecture and urban planning
  • Hassle-free transport to and from your hotel in Krakow
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.

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.

Our guide was amazing, took us round in an awesome old car and was so knowledgeable. The whole place and where we were taken showed us what things were like, and the milk bar was a definite highlight, with the atmosphere feeling like we had just stepped back in time.
