You will be picked up from your hotel to start the journey into the past, during which you will see some of the very peculiar and extraordinary examples of communist architecture.
The first stop is the former bus depot, which was transformed into the Museum of Wroclaw’s post-war history. The building itself is an important local symbol of the resistance to the communist party. In summer 1980, the workers of the public transport company started a strike in an act of solidarity with their colleagues from Gdansk’s shipyard. This was the beginning of the local Solidarity movement and a significant mile stone in the creation of a new, local identity od Wroclaw. You will learn about the consequences of World War II: mass relocation of several European nations and daily life in the communist era. You will also have an opportunity to take a break and try some typical beverages and food popular in Poland during the iron curtain.
The second part of the tour starts back in the city centre. During a pleasant stroll you will discover some of the very interesting pieces of art made in the communist times, as well as see the model housing estates build in that period. Finally you will learn about Wroclaw’s gnomes and their meaning, about heroic freedom fighters and the system of state oppression. Our tour will finish in a very special restaurant, where in the former “oppositionist room” you will receive a complementary drink and the opportunity to reflect about the past.
