Krakow Trabant Trek
Some birds aren't meant to be caged...their feathers are just too bright.
A Krakow Trabant Trek is a sightseeing experience like no other! Take a Trabant tour of the city on your hen weekend and putter your way to Nowa Huta - the former Communist District - in an old banger from East Germany.
Affectionately known as the 'Trabi', these two-stroke cars sounds like lawnmowers, look like dinky toys and have bags of retro charm. See a restaurant from the Communist era and check out a 1950s apartment. This is a rare chance to get a firsthand look at what it was really like to live in Soviet-occupied Krakow. Prepare to be shocked and fascinated.
....and we're off on another adventure!
You'll be picked up and whisked off to Nowa Huta by local guides driving Trabants or Polski Fiats. Once there, you'll take a walk to the restaurant and see what the locals used to tuck into back in the mid-20th century. You may also see tanks, bunkers, Communist propaganda and other monuments and buildings from Stalin's rule.
Your guides will give you the lowdown on what day-to-day life was like under the notoriously rigid Soviet regime. You will have to hear it from a local to believe it!
Essential for hens who love real life stories and culture, a Trabant tour will really open your eyes and show you a whole other side of Krakow.
