What a great experience this was. The ride with the Russian van to Nowa Huta, the tour in this (former) communist part of the city, the air raid shelter and the tank. And above all Matheusz's knowledge of the history of this part of the city. He himself grew up in Nowa Huta. That makes it extra special. We wouldn't have wanted to miss this.
