Kraków’s communist district, Nowa Huta, is the perfect place to understand the paradoxes of this system. An ideal communist city, monumental and grand, built in a country that had just started to raise itself from the rubble of World War II. But, for the Communist Party, the costs of its construction were meaningless. Tangible proof of communist power was the only thing that mattered.

This ideal city was supposed to be inhabited by ideal communist citizens: Homo Sovieticus. A new and better type of people, obedient, brainwashed and entirely devoted to the system, They were to replace the old chaotic, stubborn, free-willed and creative Homo Sapiens. But, nothing lasts forever. Eventually, the creatures turned against their masters. The people of Nowa Huta revolted and fought for freedom.

Join us and see one of the best examples of an ideal communist city which today, surprisingly, has so much to offer.

On this 4 hours' FREE Walkative! TOUR you will see:

  • the main square of Nowa Huta
