Zakopane
Tour no. 11

Nestled at the foot of the spectacular Tatra mountains, Zakopane is the winter sports capital of Poland and its most famous resort. During the winter, plentiful snow and challenging runs make for excellent skiing while the summer months offer hikers mountain lakes, glacial valleys and waterfalls. The mountains are also home to an unique and diverse range of flora and fauna. The tour starts with a ride up a funicular railway to the top of Mt. Gubalowka and to see a wonderful view of the Tatras. After a short walk around the peak, we return down the funicular to visit the oldest part of Zakopane where the old cottages of the mountaineers still stand, surrounded by ash trees and darkened by the sun. These wooden houses and churches were built in the Zakopane style by the remarkable Polish artist, Witkiewicz. In addition to the traditional mountain architecture, magnificent folk costumes and jewellery have also survived here to this day. To better experience the true Zakopane atmosphere, we take a walk along Krupowki, main street, lined with restaurants, cafes, boutiques and souvenir shops. We also make our lunch break here. The last stop in Zakopane is either the Tatra Museum or, on the way back to Cracow, a visit to the lovely old wooden village of Chocholow.
