Our 90 minute experience of Nowa Huta was a fantastic tour that was made incredibly interesting by our amazing guide Mateusz. Mateusz made the tour fun as well as informative, adding funny anecdotes about his grandma and her experience during the communist era as well as answering every question we had with great knowledge. Firstly, we toured the abandoned steelworks administration building, walking through former offices containing relics from the Lenin era. We then went down to the underground bunker and explored the various communication rooms and living quarters. Our tour was great and would definitely recommend to anyone staying in and around Krakow to visit this hidden gem! We think the abandoned building should also be made into a museum!
It was a last minute call to take this tour, but we are definitely lucky to do it! Such an amazing topic, for which we had no idea about! We visited a town meant to be a communist one and you will get the chance to see the steel factory and shelters made during Cold War, from the inside! Surely, both places will soon be official museums with tons of people, so those of us who visited them without crowds and measures, are definitely privileged! Last but not least, our guide! A great, young man with so much knowledge on the context and such enthusiasm!! Loved the whole experience and I strongly recommend it!
What a fantastic experience. Our guide was friendly and easy going and a mine of information. He really seemed to be enjoying taking us around the area and seemed genuinely proud of 'his city'. He spoke about how his family we're influenced by the events of the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's and was genuinely interested in our understanding of the social and political changes as the country moved from the 1950's to the present day. Loved the vintage car too!
Fantastic value for money. Our guide Klaudia was excellent. Her knowledge of the area we visited, her professionalism and her positive energy all helped make this such a enjoyble tour. We loved learning from her about life under communism in Poland and driving round in a Trabant was great fun and I felt safe at all times!
amazing tour with a very knowledgable and friendly guide. we did the full package with apartment and bunker visit. recommended!
