Full description
Zakopane is the winter capital of Poland, thanks to its splendid natural scenery, its pistes and hiking trails, and a rich folk culture. You will begin your exploration of the area by taking the funicular railway to the top of Mount Gubałówka for views over the granite and limestone peaks of the Tatra Mountains. Having returned to the oldest part of Zakopane, we will visit the charming wooden old parish church and the most unique cemetery in Poland. To complete your experience, you have a chance to visit the enormous regional market and enjoy lunch in a regional restaurant serving local specialities. If you wish to find out more about this unusual region you can visit the Tatra Museum or the village of Chochołów (famous for its 150-year-old wooden log cabins and a serene atmosphere).

Lots of drving but still enough time in the Tatra Mountains

The village with the wooden houses is nice and clean. The house visited was more like a museum. Zakapone is bigger than I thought with a big car free mile with lots of shops and cafes. The view on the mountain is limited because of the growing trees. If there would be more time, it would be a good hiking place.

I enjoyed myself so much in Zakopane and the Tatra Mountains, the guide we had was very good and good laugh, before I went on this trip I had idea what this would be like, but ended up been more amazing then I had though before hand, the views are just stunning and breathtaking, best views from restaurant I have ever had sitting out look out on the Tatra mountain. Getting see the mountains and her people and the stuff they do was incredible, the markets also a must and keep up some unique gifts to bring home, I would highly recommend it when visiting Krakow, defiantly go back and even stay in Zakopane, also try the highlanders tea( goes down like a treat).

Great day and excellent guide Jacek

Even though it was raining and foggy which meant we didn't get to see the magnificent views we had a great day. The mini bus ride was very comfortable and Jacek provided excellent commentary. We enjoyed looking at the houses, the museum, church and unique cemetery and hearing about the highlanders. Also looking around Zakopane and the furnicular ride were great.
