We were picked up on time. The tour was fun and interesting with an informative guide. We saw all the areas associated with the communist past and an old style apartment. It made a change from a walking tour.
Your 2.5-hour 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.
