Experience the simple pleasures of biking along the lazy Vistula River, and through the colorful streets of Krakow on an informative communism-themed bike tour. Despite being extensive, the tour is not too strenuous and is suitable for all levels of fitness.  Start at the tour operator's shop in the city center of Krakow, and get kitted out with a bike and all necessary equipment. Ride northeast along a brand new bike path heading towards the district of Nowa Huta, which literally means 'the new mill' due to its history as a steel milling hub during the communist era.  Make your first major stop at the old airbase that divided Nowa Huta from Krakow. From there, ride along the airstrip and enter Nowa Huta from the north side. Visit the church of Our Lord's Ark, shaped like a boat that helped defy Poland's uprising against communist rule. Enter inside to marvel at the religious art mixed with relics of socialism. From there, wind your way through the labyrinth of streets sprinkled with communist housing developments before riding along a lake past Nowa Huta's recreational center. Admire the intuitive urban design of the area that made Nowa Huta an ideal example of the proletariats city. After a few minutes, arrive at Lenin's steel mill plant, that led to the creation of Nowa Huta, the city built to house its workers. Stop for lunch at a traditional milk bar still running since the times of Joseph Stalin. After this, ride through Ronald Reagan square and return to the starting point via bike path along the river.

Krakow: Country Bike Tour to the Tyniec Abbey

8. Krakow: Country Bike Tour to the Tyniec Abbey

This country tour takes you along the Vistula river to Tyniec; a small town 12 kilometers west of Krakow, famous for its 11th-century Benedictine abbey. The abbey played a crucial military role in Poland's Christian restoration and the nation's rebuilding. Your tour will begin along the Vistula River, over a smooth bike path which will lead you through Southern Poland's picturesque countryside. You will pass through age-old woods, see crumbling forts, and cycle past some of the lakes that surround Krakow. Upon arrival at Tyniec, you will have the chance to explore the ancient grounds, enjoy a snack, take photographs of the scenery, and visit the gift shop (which is full products prepared by local monks). The essence of the tour is a relaxed, scenic country ride, rather than the stop-start nature of a city tour. You will cover a total of 25 kilometers (15.5 miles), on a ride which lasts for almost 4.5 hours, departing in the afternoon and returning in the evening. A backpack is recommended, as it will allow you to transport food, water and gifts back from the abbey.
