The socialist city is an ideal. Urban planners created various designs for such cities to translate the political concept of a socialist state into everyday life. Their designs expressed the desire to shape a new future in older, existing cities, such as Leipzig and Berlin, and in new ones, such as Halle-Neustadt and Stalinstadt, later renamed Eisenh├╝ttenstadt.
