Cost one way works out at around £8.50 each. Avoid weekends as people apparently queue for hours. We did not want to book ahead as they recommend because the weather could be bad and you'd see nothing so we waited for 2 good days in the week and one day walked the ridge to Ciemniak and the other in the...

A stunning journey up to some of the highest points in the Tatra Mountains. At the top you can walk on the peaks and visit restaurant and gift shop. Views all around are superb with snow covered mountains, pine forests and the town of Zakopane below. A fantastic experience not to be missed, but pre book your tickets in order... More

Book in advance! We were amazed at how long the non-booking queues were, when we could walk straight in with our pre-booked tickets. Amazing views from the top. The weather can change very quickly (within 5 minutes!) so go as early in the day as possible.

We took the cable car to the top of a small mountain and have a look around. There was nice view but then it began to rain not heavily at first then it got worse. We still enjoyed out visit and it was one of the highlights of our holiday

We were lucky - we had a reasonably clear day - this is vital for views! We had to wait more than an hour in a long queue in the morning. Check the weather and buy tickets on-line to avoid the wait. We used the mini bus service from the main bus station to get there.

Taking funicular to Kasprowy Wierch is a must for all tourists to Zakopane, especially if you do not ski or you visit in summer. Until recently it meant standing in loooong lines to buy tickets, but now you can buy tickets also online (strongly recommended and only a little more expensive). The views up there are really stunning but only... More

We may have been lucky, but we didn't have to wait very long for a ticket. We were there in the late afternoon. The view at the top is stunning and even better if you walk a little way from the tram station.

Unbelievable views. Make sure you book your ticket online ahead of time otherwise the wait is quite lengthy apparently. We had no trouble with the electronic ticket emailed to us and were able to get right on the tram. The ride was not over-crowded. The views are out-of-this-world. Do note that there is NO PARKING near the entrance to the... More
