Description

Discover communist Warsaw while driving an iconic car of the 70s, 80s and 90s – a Fiat 126p, also known as Toddler.

The tour begins with a quick driving lesson at the Palace of Culture and Science – the hulking symbol of communist Warsaw. After your lesson, you’ll find out how it was constructed and learn what Stalin had to do with it.

As you drive, your guide will share entertaining facts about life under communism, how things have changed and what it means to be Polish today.

You’ll see Stalin-era architecture at the Constitution Square, hear fascinating stories about the headquarters of the communist party and learn what it’s used for now.

Admire the architecture of the nearby communist ministry buildings, and get to know the communist ideas for the new, reconstructed Warsaw.

Gaze at the communist-era housing blocks of the Muranów and Mariensztat districts as you cruise around the streets, feeling the atmosphere of communist Warsaw.

Great way to explore the city!
We enjoyed this tour a lot. Driving around Warsaw in the old cars was a fun experiences. As we had already walked around the city center the previous day we chose the Communism Tour to see some other parts of Warsaw. Konrad our guide was both informative and entertaining. Definitely recommendable!
Really fun!
Really interesting learning about Warsaw, our guide Paulina was really really knowledgeable about every aspect of the architectural history. Would heavily recommend.
