Main Drag, Nowa Huta

When we got to Nowa Huta, the communist paradise, it was cold!  The wind was brisk, too.  You can see the very soviet broad boulevards and the main buildings of the village.  Everything was built by the residents.  Housing was very short in Poland after the Second World War, and people came from all over for the chance at an apartment.  The two ceiling photos are of a shop that was built as a showpiece.  The last photo is of the steelworks that still employs people of the area, if only a tenth of the number that was employed in communist times.
