Explore the communist history and architecture of Warsaw on a 3-hour bike tour, and see how capitalism is encroaching on the city. Be stunned by the socialist-realist Palace of Culture and Science, hear stories of life under communism, and more.
What to Expect
Discover the historic sites of communist Warsaw on a 3-hour bike tour, and learn the story of the city before 1989. Warsaw is nearly all flat, making cycling an easy, safe and hassle-free way to see the city.

It's been 25 years since Poland broke away from the Communist Block and turned to democracy, but a quarter century is not enough for people to forget the stories, or for the material traces to disappear.

During the tour, you will learn the horrors of life under communism, but also hear stories full of humor. Marvel at the monumental architecture, such as the Palace of Culture, Communist Party HQ, and Soviet Soldiers Cemetery.

See how the working masses lived in the Marszałkowska Housing District, and where thousands of Red Army soldiers were buried. Take a relaxing break in the “allotments,” the semi-private city gardens for the working class.
