This tour operates in a small group with an educated local guide, ensuring that participants get the most out of their visit to Warsaw. Visit key communist sites such as the Constitution Square (Plac Konstytucji) and Palace of Culture and Science (PKiN building). Head inside a typical communist-era flat and try traditional snacks deriving from Poland’s socialist days.

Discover the Utopian plans of the Ministry of Agriculture, feel the propaganda at the Palace of Culture and Science (PKiN) and learn about the unknown secrets of the former headquarters of the Central Committee of the Polish United Workers’ Party (i.e. the Party House). The tour continues to the Museum of Life under Communism (“Charm of the PRL” Museum) where the sound of an old vinyl record playing will transport you back in time. Learn and understand the reality of the communist regime by watching propaganda films while enjoying a traditional drink and snack.
