Do you know what the Soviet dream was? Discover how a city rose up against the communist regime.

Description

Take your baggage and all your belongings to join on a journey to the new working class city near Krakow. Our Nowa Huta District Tour will take us to the communist era where thousands of citizens changed their lives completely by moving their homes with the promise of a better future.

Nowadays, Nowa Huta is considered a district of Krakow and not a city as it used to be. Although the rhythm of life is totally different now, there are still traces of the Soviet dream. The biggest example is the steel mill that stands out in the epicentre of the district. An entire city was built around it, focused on the workers of the Factory.

With our English-speaking guide we will visit the wide avenues and landscaped areas to discover the most amazing and outstanding places of Nowa Huta. The curious Milk Bars of Krakow, the buildings that are still supported by socialist architecture, the churches that were fought in the Revolution, the symbolism and much more.

Find out who launched the Solidarity Movement from the Gdansk shipyards, why they fought for, when they protested and how Pope John Paul II held a Christian mass while the security forces tried to stop it.

With our Nowa Huta District Tour you will be able to know a very interesting and surprising historical side of Krakow. Do you want to join us?
