Full description
Time travel to an ideal socialist city and see Krakow from a new perspective. Visit Krakow’s biggest district, built in the 1950’s as socialist utopian city, and discover what it looks like today.

During your tour, you will be picked up directly from your hotel in a comfortable car and driven to Nowa Huta district where an English speaking guide will be waiting for you. Firstly, see Plac Centralny (Central Square) which is today’s center of Nowa Huta. Learn about the district’s history and how it was developed between 1949 and 1989.

Be guided on a walk through Aleja Roz (Avenue of Roses) where you will learn about the architecture of the district. See Tadeusz Sendzimir Steelworks and spend some time wandering through offices before your guide takes you to a secret underground tunnel.

Back on the ground, head to Arka Pana (Lord’s Ark) Church which was the first church built in Nowa Huta. Last but not least, you will be able to see real Soviet IS-2 tanks in front of Museum of the Armed Act which is one of the most recognizable landmarks of Nowa Huta. The tour is around 3 hours long and after, you will be taken back directly to your hotel.

Only problem, we asked for a French guide and we ended up with an English guide who fortunately knew how to find a way to give us explanations as best we could (thanks to him)

It was a really interesting day! It seems that we used a time machine... we literally relieved the history, in particular when we visited the bunker: the passion of the guide let us enjoy a lot our visit
