  • Zakopane and the Tatra Mountains - Saturday

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 a unique and diverse range of flora and fauna. Our tour starts with a ride up a funicular railway to the top of Mt. Gubałówka, where we have 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 Highlanders still stand, surrounded by ash trees and blackened by the sun. These wooden houses and churches were built in highlander style created 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 Krupówki, the central mall, lined with restaurants, cafes, boutiques and  souvenir shops.
