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...

This was chosen as an alternative to the cable car as it wasn't working and as we had not really researched this we were unsure what it would entail. Well what a great surprise. The sun beat down as we entered the funicular train to take us up the mountain and when we got off at the top the views... More

This is just a short ride or hike ( for those who are fit ). It offers some spectacular views of Zakopane and the Tatra Mountains. There are heaps of souvenir market stalls, horse riding and restaurants. A must see...
