Do something different during your time in Krakow and explore the district of Nowa Huta with a local guide aboard a Communist-era car. You will see the typical Socialist Realist architecture of the planned neighborhood, designed as a utopian city by the Communist regime. Your guide will provide an interesting lesson about the history of Nowa Huta and show you where the large statue of Lenin stood on Aleja Róż (Avenue of Roses). Learn the story of the Arka Pana Church and the battle the locals fought to have it built.

This 2,5-hour tour gives you the opportunity to marvel at the splendor of Plac Centralny (Central Square) while hearing about the history of ]communism in Poland and its great utopian plans. You will visit a perfect socialistic city for steelworks workers and find out what has been changed after 1989.

If you would like to upgrade your tour, choose the option that includes a fascinating visit to an underground command shelter prepared in case of a III World War scenario. You will have a chance to see the inside of the former Kombinat Steelworks administration offices and descends through an underground tunnel, leading to a shelter from the late 1950s.

Don't forget to take photos of the IIWW tank outside the Ludowy Theatre before ending your tour. All of this journey to the past takes up to 3 hours.
