Nestled at the foot of the Tatra mountains, Zakopane is the winter sports capital of Poland. During the winter, plentiful snow and challenging runs make for excellent skiing while the summer months offer hikers mountain lakes, glacial valleys and waterfalls. Our tour starts with a ride up a funicular railway to the top of Mt. Gubalowka and to see a view of the Tatras. After a walk around the peak, we return down to visit the oldest part of Zakopane where the old cottages of the mountaineers still stand, surrounded by ash trees and blackened by the sun. These wooden houses and churches were built in the Zakopane style by the Polish artist, Witkacy. In addition to the traditional 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, the central mall, lined with restaurants, cafes, boutiques and others. Our last stop is either the Tatra Museum or a visit to the old wooden village of Chocholow.
