Krakow: Nowa Huta Tour by Tram
This tour is designed to show you very unique district of Krakow located far from its medieval Old Town, Jewish Quarter and most popular museums. If you want to see more than just highlights of the city described in every possible guide, let us take you for a very interesting tour to Nowa Huta district. It was founded in 1949 as a new model of socialist ideal city by the communist government of People’s Republic of Poland. In 1951 Nowa Huta became part of the city of Krakow but its Socialist realist (Stalinist) architecture which still dominates here, makes Nowa Huta completely different than other districts of Krakow is definitely worth seeing. Additional attraction during our tour will be a ride by public tram from the city centre of Krakow to Nowa Huta and back.
