Nowa Huta communist tour – FROM PROPAGANDA TO REALITY!
If you know communism just from spy movies, here you can learn what it was for Polish people on everyday basis. We will travel to Nowa Huta – district of Krakow – and have a walk in housing estates built in social realist style.
This district was built in 50’s as an ideal communist town. But only in theory it was ideal, in practise it turned out to be full of shortcomings. During the Nowa Huta communist tour you will learn what communists promised to Polish people and what they really provided: empty shelves and queues in shops, censorship and propaganda in media, total control at work, school and even holidays. This tour can open your eyes to how regime influences the life of simple people, you will be amazed but also amused with the absurds of communist country.
