MetadataShow full item record
The following article attempts to show how the heritage space of Nowa Huta undergoes gradual transformation under the influence of tourism. An example, which is going to be examined, is a new tourist route presenting the heritage of shelters at Nowa Huta. The context for this discussion is the concept of edutainment, which is a form of education through entertainment. It will be discussed that the inclusion of entertainment elements in the process of dissonant heritage interpretation, is a solution that facilitates noticing ambivalences resulting from the complex nature of the past, and thus contributes to more profound understanding and opens a space for the acceptance of the heritage.
