Zakopane and The Tatra Mountains

Zakopane - the capital of the Tatras and Podhale. Zakopane is also Poland’s highest town. It became fashionable in the late 19th century, attracting many writers, poets, painters and sculptors, who contributed to its extraordinary atmosphere by designing fine villas creating works of art inspired by local traditions.

Because of the town’s location and build-up, you cant’t see the mountains from every place – sometimes they are concealed. The most prominent of them is Mt Giewont (The sleeping knight). There is the most characteristic peak in the Tatras.

You can also enjoy superb views from mountain summits by taking a ride on the funicular to Mt.Gubałówka or the cable car to Kasprowy Wierch; both run all year round.

Gubałówka is low, gently sloping and extensively developed, its wide crest occupied by a cafe, restaurant, souvenir stalls and a shop renting aut deck chair and skis. In winter it teems with skiers, but the funicular is great fun at any time of the year. A viewing terrace on the top offers a panorama of Zakopane and surrounding villages set against the spectacular backdrop of Tatras.

The cable car to the top of Kasprowy Wierch (1987) allows you to enjoy without much effort a truly alpine panorama, rated among the most scenic in the Tatras.  In winter the cable car is mainly used buy skiers, the run from Kasprowy is popular, but suitable for the advanced skier only.

There is the possibility of combining different forms of leisure. We are open to any suggestions. Will adjust the plan offers and the degree of difficulty to your expectations.
