I highly recommend a tour of Nowa Huta with the Nowa Huta Foundation. Fascinating reminder of events in our lifetime. We learnt so much about life in Poland under Soviet occupation during the Cold War, through glasnost and perestroika and the Solidarity revolution. Our guide...More

Our quirky trip in a 1970's Polska Fiat was really fascinating. Our wonderful " petrol head" guide had spent the first ten years of his life in a Poland under Soviet rule and had until recently lived in the Communist constructed area of Nowa Huta....More

We loved this tour. Fun, informative and some great photo opportunities. Vdka and gherkins in a 1960s flat watching a propaganda video on a tiny TV is not something many tours offer! But the highlight was parking the Trabant in different locations to create photos...More

To be honest, there isn't a great amount to actually 'see' on this tour. A lot of the places visited, you could walk past in the street and not look twice. With that said however, our guide was absolutely fantastic, bringing the communist era to...More

Yes! The tour is done in tiny cars that hold a maximum of 4 people, so a single person would be ideal :) Just sends them an email or call them. My sister and I booked it the night before we did the tour. It was so great!
