Full description

Enjoy an extended Communism tour of Krakow’s Nowa Huta district on this tour by vintage Trabant motor car; icon of the Socialist era of the Iron Curtain. Discover nuclear bunkers and stop for lunch at a classic Milk Bar, and try pickled cucumbers with traditional shots of vodka and more. All customers are equal; but some are more equal than others! If you fancy yourself as more of a Communist bigwig than an everyday Socialist worker, then this upgraded version of a standard Communism tour of Krakow goes beyond a mere sighsteeing tour of Nowa Huta to include lunch at an old-school Milk Bar canteen. Kick back with a rare opportunity to sample pickled cucumbers served with a shot of vodka. Be wowed by a guided visit to the original Cold War nuclear bunker at the former Lenin Steelworks.

For anyone curious about Communist era life in the town of Nowa Huta, this is a fantastic tour. This tour really engages the senses from the experience of riding in the Trabant car, eating a traditional lunch at a milk bar, and having polish pickles and vodka in the living room of one of the apartments. It's a great way to not only learn about life during that time, but to actually experience it a bit. It's educational, yet fun. We did it as a team event with co-workers.

A great tour and lots of fun

We were picked up on time by our driver in her very noisy Trabant. We then took to the road for our visit to Nova Huta. We got an insight into life there from the 1950s through to the present day as we visited shops, a couple of restaurants and the highlight, a typical communist-era apartment. Along the way we heard about the history of Poland and had a few laughs with our guide. The tour was great fun and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to travellers to Krakow.

Fun day

We were with a group of 10 and really enjoyed our morning tour. The pick up, program, information and guides were very friendly and attentive. Will definitely recommend to book this tour if you go to Krakow. A fun way to learn more about communism whilst you experiencing the drive in the trabant.
