Uncover the secrets of life behind the Iron Curtain as you embark on a walking tour through this grand medieval city. See examples of Communist-era architecture, visit a district known as a showpiece for Stalinism, and drop by a local bar for the Polish specialty—vodka.
Begin the tour at the entrance to the huge steelworks at Nowa Huta and listen to your guide explain the cultural significance of one of the city's most populous areas. Hop on the tram and ride to the district's central square to observe how towers of Communist-style apartment blocks grew from a medieval center with Baroque and Renaissance styles.
Having seen where steelworkers lived and worked, it's time to see where they socialized, so partake in the age-old tradition and drink vodka in a local bar. Continue to The People's Theater and hear about its key role as a cultural hub for the area.
Your tour concludes at Arka Pana, the first church built in Nowa Huta. Listen as your guide explains the controversial building and the site's role in the pursuit of democracy.
