Full description
If you visiting Krakow do not forget to visit Nowa Huta! Find your guide and go to this perfect socialist city of the 50s. Expand your adventure to visit the partially abandoned steelworks that still works. Together with your guide go to explore two almost twin buildings and find out the differences between them.

Go through the underground tunnel connecting the two buildings and see how bomb shelters looked in the second half of the 50's.

Visit the majestic entrance hall, resembling the renaissance staircase and rooms where expensive and solid ornamental stones were used to satisfy the aesthetic senses of the directors of the plant. Visit the director's executive offices and the corner offices of the engineers. Check out how the radio control room and radio station works, and listen to authentic tapes recorded here!

See the theater hall in the workers building, which is also used today and visit one of the eight oval corner staircases which are located in both buildings
