Full description
Can you imagine sharing your bathroom with a fish for a week? Or standing ten hours in a queue to buy toilet paper? Or simply waiting in front of a closed shop till 1 p.m., with a terrible hangover, before you could buy a beer? We don’t think you can... But this is our experience. Poland after the Second World War was one of the communist countries, where terror and sorrow was mixed with the comic and the absurd situation. We invite you to Nowa Huta, the city which was a communist paradise, and at the same time a fortress, prepared to defend its citizens in case of an attack on the Soviet Bloc from the West. And it is here where you have a unique chance to see modern houses and squares created according to Leonardo da Vinci plans, experience the taste of vodka and herring, admire the size of the Steelworks Complex or visit the church which is the symbol of freedom. During the tour we will tell you about the realties of everyday life in communist Poland, while showing you the most significant places connected with our recent past, now history.
