Had to stand in shelter for an hour but it was amazing to watch the voume of the rain. Walked along top of the mountain...was like Knock in Ireland... More

We walked up and down. At the top there are many stalls of souvenirs and refreshments but it is very busy at week- end anyway with tourists. Good views over the town and to the Tatras across the valley. if you are after souvenirs the market at the bottom of the funicular is better and bigger.

We to the cable car to the top and spent about 2 hours in the fresh air. There were many shops and some side stalls. Fruit was on sale such as blueberries and raspberries

You can take a funicular to the top of this not-very-high mountain and back, or better still you can walk to the top (about one hour; remember about proper shoes) Nice views of Zakopane and the mountains from the top. You can take a walk along the mountain top (easy) and get back to Zakopane on a chair-lift (does not... More

The views in all directions are good. The stalls and attactions are average - probably good for children. We didn't have time to walk far which was a shame.

Its small mountain so easily you can go up or down. You can also use a mountain train to go up and then go down on foot. During the winter, its great ski area.

The top of Gubałówka gives you very nice view of the Tatra mountains so just for this sake it's worth visiting. Also, the tram ride up is nice, and the station is at the end of Krupówki street, very close to the city center. The huge drawback for me are the booths on the top - there are literally hundreds...

If you walk to the top it makes for a beautiful trip, however taking the tram to the top is a waste of money. The view of Zakopane is really beautiful, but otherwise, there are just a million booths seeking the same thing and it really smells like horse pee. Buy a poncho as rain can come from nowhere. It...
