This first completely social-realistic city in Poland, is an interesting point on the route to understand Polish modern history. For years Nowa Huta, located in the east of Cracow, was associated only with communism and ugly, colorless blocks of flats. Few from growing number of visitors were able to notice a unique composition of renaissance, baroque and classicism in its prior design, which all in all looks very attractive and deserves attention. A lot of international visitors have already appreciated its exceptional town planning and original architecture. Slowly, so does its townsfolk. If you are interested in the times of communistic Poland, would like to see and hear how life at that epoch looked like, and experience something more than only “must sees”, you shouldn’t miss visiting this noteworthy district.
