Communist Warsaw says

The free walking tour offered by Break in Warsaw is an informative and entertaining glimpse into the days of communism. For 2 hours it covers Warsaw’s darker past and shows the lasting mark that the communism system of the Soviet-Union left on the city, including the culture and people. Hear about interesting events that took place during the period like the government’s response to a housing shortage, explore the Palace of Culture and Science, and learn more about the irrational communist ideology and its effects on economies. Take the tour for an alternative insight into a critical period in Poland’s history and enjoy a local knowledge and perspective.
