THE WINTER CAPITAL OF POLAND

We invite you to visit Zakopane – the winter capital of Poland located at the foot of the Tatra Mountains, with breathtaking views and picturesque natural landscapes that are enchanting not only in winter but at every time of the year! Captivating scenery, characteristic folk culture, highlander-style cuisine, numerous tourist trails and ski routes – all of this contributes to the richness of Zakopane, which is the most popular mountain tourist resort in Poland. The trip will start with a visit to a shepherd’s hut, where tourists will taste the traditional smoked cheese called ‘oscypek’. Then the group will visit the Regional Museum which will be an opportunity to have a look at Zakopane art. After the visit to the Museum, tourists will get into a funicular that will take them straight to the top of Mount Gubałówka to experience an imposing view of the granite and limestone peaks of the Tatras. During their ‘spare time’ tourist can stay on Mount Gubałówka or ride down to the huge regional market square and eat dinner in one of the restaurants offering local delicacies.

More about the tour

One of the most beautiful places in Poland – Zakopane – is a town with local culture that can completely surprise you, even though it is located only 100 km away from Kraków! From charming wooden Witkiewicz-style villas, through imposing mountain peaks over the city, to numerous traditional restaurants at the foot of the Tatra Mountains: Zakopane has everything that every mountain lover can dream of! The unusual atmosphere of the town has been created by the harmony of people and nature. As our tourists will learn during the tour, many respectable Polish artists living in Zakopane had a huge impact on its history. We guarantee unforgettable experiences and views that you will not come across anywhere else. To find this out, it is enough to take a peek from behind the window pane during the journey – the mountainous terrain and characteristic highlander-style wooden architecture will appear after only one hour of the route. One of the places worth paying attention to during the journey is certainly the village of Chochołów, which is known for its 150-year-old log houses and unique peaceful atmosphere. When tourists reach their destination, they will learn the history of the Zakopane style in the Regional Museum and taste local delicacies, e.g. a tasting of the famous ‘oscypek’ cheese. The breathtaking view of the Tatras from the top of Mount Gubałówka will provide extra thrills and unforgettable impressions. Obviously, when you are in Zakopane you cannot miss a walk around the famous Krupówki and the regional market square. If you spend your spare time there, you will feel the atmosphere of Zakopane in its entirety. An ideal complement of the trip will be a meal in one of the local restaurants.
