Reasons for trip

This tour is an great opportunity to discover Krakow’s centrally-planned Socialist district of Nowa Huta, complete with steelworks and houses built in the Renaissance style of the Soviets. Nowa Huta, just outside Krakow, was meant to be a model Communist city, but later came to be one of the centres of revolution and resistance within Poland. During the tour, it’s like travelling back in time in a genuine Trabant car to get around. The cars a little tight for those with mobility problems but otherwise the tour requires little walking unless you want to. It gives you a sense of how the average Polish person lived, worked and played under Communism, and it is set up in a fun as well as informative way with stories and anecdotes from a local person.

I recommend it having booked it myself this past Summer. They will pick you up from your hotel/accommodation. Great fun!
