The ride up on the Funicular railway is well worth doing. Snowing made it a real treat. Many wooden buildings at the top and plenty of opportunity for food and drink. Spent a couple of hours up here. Lots of skiers and snowboarders. Great value.

Beware of the hawkers selling all sorts of tat, pity they don't ban them, they spoil the views! The funicular ride is very fast, and good if you've never been on one before, the views on a clear day are amazing!

Beautiful view on the vallee, with the mountains in the third plan. I really recommend at least spending two hours walking across the road and enjoying the view. There are some good restaurants close to the funicular. I recommend the Gospoda pod niebem. Delicious and good service!

Gubalowka is quite popular among locals in Krakow & most of my friends insisted me on visiting Zakopane & take a walk down the Krupowki Street. Gubalowka houses tons of restaurants; Adventure Enthusiasts can enjoy artificial rock climbing, cable car ride, you can buy wooden artifacts & tons of memorabilia I brought back fond memories of exhilarating funicular ride to...

Just take the funicular to get a great view of the town and the Polish Tatras. Walk around and take in the air and feel the power and exitement of Zakopane.

We went to Gubalowka on the cable car to the top looking for somewhere for the kids to use the their sledges. when we got to the top there were stalls/shops bars and an ice ring. It was a great day because it was snowing heavily and this is one of the reasons we went to Poland over the Xmas... More

We walked up in the snow and took the path next to the funicular. We like walking so it didn't take too long. If you prefer the ride it is £4 return. It was a snowy day so we didn't get the views unfortunately but it was good to blow the cobwebs away. The top is very touristy with several... More

It is not what it used to be however for me there is no trip to Zakopane without climbing or getting a cable car to Gubalowka. It is a must because of amazing views of Tatra mountains - just make sure you chose a sunny day! Some new tacky places but also a few new attractions including ice rink. I... More

Breath taking views. To much things to buy nothing to do with Zakopane. Horse rides available and of course tasty restaurant menu.
