Nowa Huta a New World Heritage Site?

Krakow authorities want part of Nowa Huta to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, joining the historical centre of the Old Town and such world-famous sites as the Taj Mahal and Egypt’s pyramids. Vice-Mayor of Krakow, Elżbiety Koterby, said that Nowa Huta must first be included in the local development plan and, in order to protect the area, an extension of the Cultural Park.

Nowa Huta is the easternmost district of Kraków and one of only two entirely pre-planned socialist realist cities ever built (the other being Magnitogorsk in Russia’s Ural Mountains). The city district is one of the finest examples of deliberate social engineering in the world.
