Excellent price, beautiful view from the top and many market stalls to visit. We were up there two hours and it didn't feel like it. There are restaurants at the top too and a fake beach!

Really crowded however it doesn't take too long to get on the top. The view was stunning! You should better buy your ticket in advance in the city from the machine. In front of the entrance the queue is quite long usually.

We took the funicular up Gubalowka and found it underwhelming. The views at the top are pleasant enough but nothing compared to those you can get on hikes around the area, including relatively accessible hikes such as Nosal. The top is also overrun with tourists and touristy shops. Might be worth doing if you are not able to hike, but... More

Zacopane is a special area of Poland, much different than the old cities, the beach, or other areas. Getting to Zacopane is not that easy but the countryside is very picturesque with unique architecture, farms, sheep, goats, chickens, and cows. We took the Gubalowka to the top which gives you a very nice view of the mountains and the highest... More

I was going to book a tour from Krakow however when I found out companies charged anything from 190-350zl I decided to go it alone. Buses leave frequently and cost just 15zl one way, taking 3-4 hours. It's a short walk from the station to the main street, where the attraction is at the end of it. Highly advisable to... More

Nice view from the top, although if cloudy - not so spectacular. We were told that this is the best place to see the sunset- well you don't see any sunset simply because of the mountain))) Laser show would've been ok if only in complete darkness, otherwise it's quite a dodgy entertainment.

View not that great here. Taking cable car both ways cost 21 zl, can walk there too. Mostly restaurants and shops at the top but nothing really exciting.

Went back down on ski chair which again was great and then came back up ? Lots to do zip wire treetop adventure. Lots of bars and places to... More
