One of the most beautiful places I have been to. If you are in Zakopane you can not miss this. There are buses that run every half hour across the road from the main bus station and drop you off at the foot of the hike up to Morskie Oko.
I did the hike by foot as I feel sorry for the poor horses, it's quite a trek but if you're fit it's well worth it. Even if you're not I think you will enjoy the challenge! (Like me)
Allow yourself about 7 hours for this. It took me 2.5 hours to walk up, then another hour to walk around the lake, and I also sat down for some lunch. Then it took me 2 hours to walk down.
Unfortunately I arrived there too late in the day otherwise I would have done the second hike up to Czarny Staw.
The views at Mkrskie Oko are something that have to be seen to be believed, just stunning. The only thing I did not like was the amount of people there, if really took away from the serenity however if you go walking around the lake you can find some peace and quiet and just take in the views with no one around.
Just beautiful and well worth the trip. Even if you are just staying in Krakow and not in Zakopane, I would still recommend doing a day trip from krakow to Morskie Oko.
