Being from this part of Poland, this is one of my favorite places in the world! Our family loves to go and hike here, look at gorgeous scenery & enjoy the views. The restaurants in the area are also great, and overall this is the place to be when you want to relax, escape the busyness of life & take... More

Was lovely, but be prepared for a hike in the snow should you plan to do it on foot!! We were not prepared for how much snow there would be in Zakopane in April, so it was a challenge.

This is one of few places you must visit while in Zakopane. We were at Krupowski street - the main bazaar of Zakopane. Then we say a rail station - Gubalowka. When we inquired, they said it is a cable and you go to top of mountains. So we took it. It is 7 min drive to top of the... More

This is one of few places you must visit while in Zakopane. You wont be waiting long for modern wagons, little bit not safe for children waiting on side as stairs are not fenced or secured. On the top of Gubalówka (1 126 m) there is too many things not connected with Zakopane and should be removed to avoid trashy... More

We took the vehicular railway both ways which was quick and efficient once on it but queue was ridiculous. No organisation. Everyone trying to walk up were hanging on to the fence and trying to pull themselves up ! Didn't look much fun on their faces. Had ty skied beer and chips at top in double deck chair overlooking gorgeous... More

You can reach it by simply walking or by taking a tram [aprox 20 PLN one way]. Well, it's definitely worth doing by walking. View on the top is just perfect! There's plenty useless souvenirs you can buy over there. Be aware of the fact that restaurants and bars are a bit more expensive here. You can also do horse... More

Recently visited this resort. Went up funicular to top of mountain. After a lovely lunch in one of the restaurants we left to go on a walk. I was attracted by some guy playing a magic trick. DON'T GO NEAR THEM! They robbed us of £250 (zloty and pounds) Unknown to us they were working in a gang (women and... More
