What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Communist Warsaw Tour by Nysa 522 Car

Take a look at the Palace of Culture and Science!

Meet your guide at your central Warsaw hotel and hop aboard a brightly-hued Nysa 522. Enjoy a unique view of the city as you hit the streets in the beloved communist-era car. As you go, hear about the city’s postwar history from your guide. Learn about key political figureheads such as Lech Walesa, the leader of the Solidarity Union Party, while passing must-see attractions.

Head first through the socialist architecture of Constitution Square and gaze up at the impressive Ministry of Agriculture on Wspólna Street. Then, check out one of the city’s most famous Stalinist skyscrapers, the Palace of Culture and Science. Learn why Varsovians refer to the structure as the ‘elephant in lacy underwear,’ as you step inside to explore.

Continue to the Central Committee of the Polish United Workers’ Party, the group’s headquarters during communist rule. Delve deeper into the period’s politics and disputes before heading to a communist-era apartment.

Inside, enjoy a taste of traditional snacks characteristic of the 1950s and 60s, complemented by a shot of local vodka. Watch a few brief communist propaganda films before hopping back inside your Nysa 522. After four hours, your tour will conclude at your Warsaw hotel.
