Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Catch a glimpse of life behind the Iron Curtain with this tour of Krakow’s communist history. Join your guide in an authentic Trabant car as you explore Nowa Huta, the Socialist Realist suburb designed by the Soviet Union. You’ll learn about this fascinating feat of city planning, where each detail held ideological significance. An optional upgrade provides access to a private museum and a restaurant from the communist-era.
  • Discover the history of Nowa Huta, a model suburb from the communist era
  • Travel back in time as you ride in an original Trabant vehicle
  • Explore Nowa Huta as a feat of architecture and urban planning
  • Hassle-free transport to and from your hotel in Krakow
What to Expect
Your tour begins with convenient pick-up from your hotel in Krakow. You’ll commence your tour in an authentic Trabant vehicle, the iconic car of East Germany. Travel to Nowa Huta, one of the world’s two fully-planned Socialist Realist cities, known as Stalin’s gift to Krakow. Track history through the architecture here, much of it driven by symbolism and ideology. Thanks in part to a campaign to build a Catholic church in the city, Nowa Huta later became a site of Poland’s resistance movement. If you wish, you may upgrade to a 4-hour visit which includes a guided tour of a private museum and a memorable trip to a communist-era restaurant. Visit a communist-style apartment, sample pickled cucumbers, and try your hand at driving the Trabant for a truly transporting experience.

This tour is excellent. It is worth even the trabant ride itself. The guide, Jo, was friendly and well informed. The luxury tour includes a drink at a communist restaurant and lunch in a milk bar. The milk bar is very basic. A little too school dinner for my taste but my husband

This tour is so different from the usual city tours. We were picked up from our hotel and driven in our bone shaking car to the Nowa Hute district, constructed by Stalin after WW2. Fascinating, fun and informative. Who thought a deserted steelworks could be so interesting?

Our guide Adrianna picked us up from our Airbnb in a beautiful Trabant. We could hear the engine from a mile away. The trip to “Communist Paradise” was amazing, complete with propaganda tv, shots of vodka, dress up and a chance to drive the Trabant. Adrianna was very informative
