See the main square and tenements, view Cold War-era bomb shelters, and visit the stunning ark-shaped Lord’s Ark church, a symbol of Nowa’s battle for a church during the 1960s.

Imagine how life in Poland looked like in the 60 and 70s, as you enjoy a drink in a communist-era restaurant. Learn about life under Soviet rule as well as the 1980s' anti-communism resistance from your guide.
