When people hear the word ‘utopia’, they often think of something unreal. Meanwhile, utopia – as envisioned by Thomas More – is simply a good place to be. One based on justice, solidarity and equality. The building of Nowa Huta was based on similar ideas. These were not just empty words. People were given a chance to have a home of their own. It may not have been a perfect one, but for many it was still a dream come true.
