This city was designed and built in the years 1949-1951 and from 1st January 1951 it was incorporated into Krakow as one of its districts. Nowa Hua was built in the Socialist-Realist style as a model socialist town. The style is characterized by its grandeur and thorough planning emphasizing the power of the socialist state. It was established for employees of the Vladimir Lenin Steelwork, nowadays Sendzimir Steelwork. The route guides you through examples of socialist-realist architecture: Steelworks Administrative Centre, Central Square (Plac Centralny), Rose Avenue, Ratusz Park (The Park of the Town Hall) and the sacred part of Nowa Huta: The Church of Our Lady of Częstochowa, Nowa Huta Cross, Lord’s Ark (The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary Queen of Poland), which are the symbols of the struggle for Christian faith during the communism. On the route we will also see the picturesque Matejko Manor designed by the artist himself.
