See abandoned factories and walk along the border of the fallen Iron Curtain on a private Communist themed tour in Bratislava. The offbeat excursion brings the architecture, history, living conditions of the iconic era to life in a way that most tours can't. To truly immerse yourself in the Communist era, your guide takes you each site in a 1970s Czechoslovak car or a retro Skoda 1203 van.

This tour was great. Our guide Maroš was very informative and gave us lots of knowledge about life under communism and how it ended. The tour covered lots of sights including the Slavin war memorial, and the area where the iron curtain was at the edge of the city. Great trip,
