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.
