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 tour gives you the opportunity to marvel at the splendor of Plac Centralny (Central Square) while hearing about the history of Polish communism. You will visit bomb shelters located close to the city which were built for a potential World War III. Optionally you can expand your adventure by visiting shelters that were built to prepare citizens for a nuclear war.
Another interesting stop on this tour is the administration buildings of a steel factory. The factory itself cannot be visited on the inside due to governmental regulations. As an additional option, you can watch a 1950s propaganda film.
Don't forget to take photos of the tank outside the Ludowy Theatre before ending your tour.
