Retro Ride through Socialist Utopia

Step into a time capsule and relive the past with this guided tour of Nowa Huta in Kraków, a district built as a socialist utopia. This unique journey begins in quintessential communist-era cars, like the Fiat 126 or Lada 2101, teleporting you straight to the yesteryears. With a local, English-speaking guide, who carries personal anecdotes and deep insights about the locale, navigate through the city's stark contrasts of past and present. Marvel at the Central Square, once home to Poland's largest Lenin statue and discover Nowa Huta's architectural legacy of Socialist Realism.

Exploring Hidden Gems of a Bygone Era

Extend your journey through time with an optional upgrade to a 4-hour tour. Delve deep into the heart of Nowa Huta's industrial past with a visit to the abandoned but once-vibrant steelwork administrative buildings and director's offices.
