1. Krakow: Communism Tour by Trabant
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. Travel in a vintage Trabant, Polish Fiat 'Toddler' or a Soviet Lada 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! The Communism Tour includes walking around the district and refreshments in an old-fashioned restaurant. There's also a short visit to the local 1950s shop with unique, traditional tacky souvenirs and truly Socialist interior design.
