Our Communist Warsaw Tour includes driving in a retro minibus “Zuk” as well as walking with a professional guide. We will pick you up from your hotel in the centre of Warsaw.
You’ll begin the tour with a visit in the Muranow district, where the former Communist Party headquarters is located. The area, built at the place of the former ghetto, is a perfect example of typical socialist-style concrete architecture. Monumental gates, classicist ornaments and symmetrical wide streets will tell you a lot about the communist government’s taste.
Then, you’ll see the former Censorship headquarters and the Free Speech Monument that commemorates Warsaw citizens resistance against the communist oppression. You’ll pass by the Ministry of Agriculture that is another example of an utopian communist building. Finally, you’ll discover the Constitution Square that is one of the most prominent socialist realism monument in Warsaw.
The tour wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Palace of Science and Culture, that is probably the most popular socialist building in the city. From there, you’ll follow your guide to the Pilsudski Square, where you’ll hear even more absorbing stories of the communist era in Warsaw.
Thanks to our professional guide and his immense historical knowledge, you’ll get a comprehensive history lesson of the communist period in Poland and its enormous impact on the daily life of Warsaw citizens. You’re welcome to ask any questions!
