Our 90 minute experience of Nowa Huta was a fantastic tour that was made incredibly interesting by our amazing guide Mateusz. Mateusz made the tour fun as well as informative, adding funny anecdotes about his grandma and her experience during the communist era as well as answering every question we had with great knowledge. Firstly, we toured the abandoned steelworks administration building, walking through former offices containing relics from the Lenin era. We then went down to the underground bunker and explored the various communication rooms and living quarters. Our tour was great and would definitely recommend to anyone staying in and around Krakow to visit this hidden gem! We think the abandoned building should also be made into a museum!
What a fantastic experience. Our guide was friendly and easy going and a mine of information. He really seemed to be enjoying taking us around the area and seemed genuinely proud of 'his city'. He spoke about how his family we're influenced by the events of the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's and was genuinely interested in our understanding of the social and political changes as the country moved from the 1950's to the present day. Loved the vintage car too!
This really is an outstanding tour. Our guide Mateusz (sp?) was incredibly knowledgable and showed a real passion for the subject. We had a late afternoon flight and only had up until lunchtime to do something but didn’t want to waste our last day so decided to book this. It did not disappoint.
We really enjoyed the tour. It was great fun going around the city in those classic cars from the communist era, but what we enjoyed most was that the guide was also very knowledgeable and had lots of interesting background infos for us. Would definitely recommend!
it was awesome. what can I say more? you should take this tour, don't hesitate just book the tour and enjoy your day in Nowa Huta. learning the city history and even more than that. we are so happy with this program!!
