Can you imagine sharing a bathroom with a fish for a week? Or waiting for ten hours in a queue to buy toilet paper? Or just waiting in front of a closed shop for the clock to strike 1:00pm, experiencing a huge hangover, so that you could buy some beer? Probably not... However, we experienced such situations. After World War II, Poland was one of the communist countries, where terror and sadness mingled with humorous and absurd situations.
Welcome to Nowa Huta, a communist paradise city that doubled as a fortress prepared to defend citizens against attacks on the Soviet Bloc from the West. It is there where you have a unique opportunity to see modern houses and squares constructed in accordance with plans by Leonardo da Vinci, feel the taste of vodka with herring, admire the size of the Steelworks complex, or visit Lord's Ark Church, a symbol of freedom. During the tour we will tell you about the realities of everyday life in communist Poland, showing at the same time the most important places connected with what was our present until recently, and now belongs to the past.
The price includes: tour with a laid-back guide, riding in an old-school Trabant, Centralny Square, residential buildings, Steelworks Administration Centre, Soviet tank, Lord's Ark Church, free drink in the "Stylowa" restaurant.
Duration time: 2.5 hours
January-December: daily according to your wish.

We provide transportation in an old-school Trabant called "Honecker's Revenge", a piece of good socialist realist architecture, and a stopover at the "Stylowa" restaurant, which has not changed since the Gierek times.
Trabants sometimes break down and it is part of the experience. In such a case we reserve the right to continue the tour in a different old-school car or a taxi. The tour is not a guided history tour, but a collection of interesting real-life anecdotes.
