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 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.
