During this trip, we will show you what life was like in a Socialist country. We will see amusing things such as their automotive inventions. We will see strange things such as the architecture of the houses. We will see terrible things such as the torture rooms used by the Citizens' Militia, where Poles killed their own compatriots. Most importantly, we will see how socialist countries prepared for nuclear war and real storages of nuclear weapons.
Everyone will have to opportunity to try dishes from that time, which still taste the same as they did 40 years ago. We'll have the chance to ride in a vehicle produced in the socialist period and to see a classic home furnished with original items from this time.
In Krakow and Warsaw, we'll view relics hidden amongst modern skyscrapers. In Gdansk, we'll get to know the history of "Solidarity" - the first independent movement in socialist countries and its leader, Lech Walesa. We will tour probably the only Museum of Socialist Realism in the world, which is full of, amongst other things, knocked down statues of Lenin.
Our trip will finish in Berlin, near the remnants of the Berlin Wall.
