Nowa Huta is the youngest district of Krakow. Was established after the Second World War as a separate city, then after a year incorporated into Krakow.
It was meant to be the first socialist without God, where a socialist man was going to grow up. In the 1980’s Nowa Huta became one of the most active and important place in the fight for a democratic state. Today, you can see the city’s beautiful urban concept in the style of socialist realism, a beautiful church and monastery in Mogila, and other modern churches. Here you can visit former air-raid shelters and see contemporary exhibitions presenting certain issues.
Nowa Huta is a green place that allows you to breathe within parks and squares, with a recreation area – the Nowa Huta Reservoir or Przylasek Rusiecki.
