Description

Enjoy an extended tour of Krakow’s Nowa Huta district in a vintage Trabant automobile – an icon of socialist East Germany.

All customers are equal, but some are more equal than others! If you fancy yourself as more of a communist bigwig than an everyday socialist worker, then this upgraded version of our standard communism tour is for you. Once you’re done sightseeing in the Nowa Huta district, you’ll be treated to lunch at an old-school Polish milk bar.

We'll visit a small exhibition of real-life Communist items in the local 1950s shop on this tour. You'll also get a first-hand taste of the threat of nuclear war in Poland during the 1950s at the original bunker located under the former Lenin Steelworks and enjoy a rare opportunity to sample pickled cucumbers served with a shot of vodka.

Nowa Huta great trip!
Our guide was friendly and informative. It was great travelling in the Trabant and visiting the Milk Bar. Watching the propaganda film in the authentic appartment drinking Vodka took us back in time. Highly recommend this trip.

Communism Deluxe...best thing to do in Krakow
A friend and I booked the Communism Deluxe tour in late May 2016. We were picked up at our hotel in a green Trabant by the best crazy tour guide ever...Kuba M. He was relaxed, fun to spend time with. Knew how to be informative and fun throughout the tour. You really got to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Poland during the tough time of Communism. Apart from driving around Krakow in a cool Traby, you went to an old style MilkBar and ate traditional Polish dishes. We visited a typical apartment and drank Polish vodka. If you visit Krakow and have 4 hours to spare, this tour is a must. This was a true highlight of our time in Krakow even though it rained all day. The price of the tour is well worth it. Best money spent during our time in Krakow. Thanks for the memories Kuba, hope to see Krakow again real soon.

Nice, casual and interesting
It was great to have such an easy going and fun guide with great personal insights from his own and his family's experience. Though it would have been nice to get more info on the history side and how it shaped Krakows society today. Otherwise, it was a refreshing interesting tour, far from the traditional touring experience!
tour is off the beaten path!
Great tour. We would never have learned the backstory of Poland’s communist history or visited this area ourselves. Truly interesting and the car is the cherry on top!

Interesting tour exploring life behind the Iron Curtain
I booked this tour for my parents and me (a little bit difficult for an elderly person to squeeze into the back of the Trabant, but not impossible). Our guide Claudia was very informative and personable. We learned a lot about life in Poland under communism; sampled some vodka and received an excellent recommendation for dumplings. The tour gives you an opportunity to see a totally different side to Krakow. I would recommend.
