The article provides the first systematic and critical interpretation of the narrative centred on Nowa Huta, the model socialist town built in the 1950s next to Cracow, the former capital of Poland. This narrative evolved from Nowa Huta's initial presentation as a model of socialism and 'a Party bastion in the intellectual and bourgeois sea of Cracow' during the 1950s, to its perception as a principal bastion of the anti-Communist struggle and, ultimately, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, as a symbol of rampant consumerism.
