Industrial Tour of Kraków
This is our proposal for those visitors who are interested in industry and old manufacturing. Exact program can be individually adjusted to your needs and expectations. Let us mention which sites are worth visiting in sample itinerary below.
We could start with visiting one of the newest museums in Krakow – Museum of Urban Technology . Major themes of the museum are: history of development of public transport in Krakow, Development of Polish technology and industry, factories and construction. Amongst most impressive objects are: old tram from 19th century, local horse wagonette and old buses of public transportation.
Just around the corner of the Museum there is an old Krakow Gasworks (1856) so we can also take a look at that and then move to Schindler’s Factory – usually visited as important site related to Jewish and World War 2 history but it we can also focus on an industrial features of this famous factory.Finally we can ride toward most industrialized part of Krakow – former communist town of Nowa Huta with huge complex of Mittal’s Steelworks. Unfortunately this still operating industrial plant cannot be visited inside but its huge buildings and architecture of Nowa Huta district itself is something definitely worth seeing. On our way from the center to Nowa Huta we will pass by the Heat and Power Station of Krakow which in certain periods of time can be visited inside.
We offer private tours with private English speaking guide. We can pick you up from your hotel at chosen time.
