Nowa Huta

industrial section of Krakow (Cracow), southern Poland, on the Vistula River. The original medieval village settlements of Mogila and Pleszow grew up around a 13th-century Cistercian monastery. The population of modern Nowa Huta grew rapidly after 1949, attracted by the development of the large Lenin Steelworks (now Sendzimir Steelworks), a hallmark of socialist Poland. Nowa Huta, originally a separate city located just east of Krakow, was incorporated into Krakow in 1951.
