Full description
The Berlin Wall may have fallen and the Iron Curtain cracked, but many of Communism's most famous legacies are alive and well in Krakow.

On this 2.5-hour tour you’ll travel in a vintage Trabant automobile on a visit to Krakow's Socialist district of Nowa Huta, complete with steelworks and houses built in the Soviet Realist style.

This unique project was meant to be a model Communist city, but later came to be one of the centers of revolution and resistance within Poland.

During the tour you’ll travel back in time to experience the wonders of this one-of-a-kind city. Not only will you discover what life was like under Communism, you’ll hear all sorts of interesting stories. Your laid-back local guide will certainly bring the good old days back to life!

Fantastic value for money. Our guide Klaudia was excellent. Her knowledge of the area we visited, her professionalism and her positive energy all helped make this such a enjoyble tour. We loved learning from her about life under communism in Poland and driving round in a Trabant was great fun and I felt safe at all times!

Great fun and very informative.

I know a lot of people do these tours because they are either interested in the cars or want to do something a little quirky. Putting the cars aside it's still a great tour to do and recommend for anyone interested in the area or period. Our guides were local to the area and made it a fun, interesting and informative tour. Our group of seven contained petrol heads and non-petrol heads and we all thought the tour was great and the cars (a Trabant and a Lada) were an added fun bonus. Highly recommend.
