We didn’t read the fine print and did not realize the transportation is only one way. Our fault on that one but our guide helped us get on the right tram to return to Krakow. Also, there really was not much to see at Nova Huta. We did enjoy our guide who has his doctorate in history and was very knowledgeable. We also enjoyed trying some traditional Polish food.

It has been an absolutely fantastic trip with our private guide Matthaus. He has a formidable knowledge of Nova Huta and communist history and speaks perfect and easy-to-understand English. A trip everyone who comes to Krakow should give themselves
