Ride in ex-communist militia van or an old taxi Fiat 125 as you travel through the legacy of the Polish socialist era in Warsaw. See the many marks communism left on the city, the Palace of Culture and Science, and sample vodka.

Highlights

  • Explore the legacy that the Polish socialist era has left on Warsaw
  • Ride though the city in an old taxi or a former-communist militia van
  • Visit the unique Life Under Communism Museum (optional)

Description

Head out from your Warsaw hotel on a unique tour that takes you to experience the city’s communist legacy in an original ex-communist militia van or an old taxi Fiat 125.  On this 4-hour tour, you’ll get an insider’s look at the legacy of the Polish socialist era. First on your itinerary is a visit to Constitution Square to feel the spirit of the socialist propaganda. See if you can meet the challenge to find a sculpture that looks like the politician Lech Walesa. Stop by the Ministry of Agriculture building where you’ll learn about the utopian plans for reconstructing the city ruined by war. Enjoy a pop quiz with food ration cards as prizes, which you will later be able to exchange for shots of vodka. Marvel at the iconic Palace of Culture and Science, Warsaw’s questionable gift from Uncle Joe (Stalin), before moving on to the very nerve center of the Polish communist system – the former seat of the Central Committee of Polish United Workers’ Party. Learn about the quirks and intricacies of everyday life under the communist regime by taking a sentimental tour of the brilliantly equipped Life Under Communism Museum before being dropped off at your hotel.
