It was really so great area to enjoy the day time up in the valley. Lots of activities to do and enjoy for all age groups. Restaurants, cafes, kiosks are adding large selections to dine. Great views and hiking. Dont miss it during your visit to zakopane

Took the funicular to the top and apart from the view there's nothing really to be impressed about unless you want to look at reams of Chinese made tat stalls, pose with a lamb picture stands and dogs mooching around. Spend your time visiting the mountain at Kasprowy Wierch and your money for the main market in Zakopane.

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.

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 fresh mountain air was very nice and the view of the other mountains from the gubalowka was very interesting.
