Full-Day Trip to Zakopane from Krakow

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and climb aboard a bus in central Kraków in the morning, and watch the urban landscape change into forests and green hillsides on the drive to the village of Chochołów, making a quick stop halfway. See fine examples of traditional Polish wooden architecture from the 19th-century, when houses were commonly made without the use of any nails. Time permitting, see how craft traditions are being kept alive with a visit to a local artisan’s workshop.

    Continue on to the charming mountain town of Zakopane, where many shops and homes appear untouched by time. Explore highlands heritage and decorative arts at the Tatra Museum and Villa Koliba, a beautifully designed and preserved wooden home. See evidence of local burial customs at a historic cemetery, and pay a visit to the town’s oldest wooden church.

    Get a new perspective on the neighboring Tatry Mountains with a funicular ride up Gubałówka Hill, followed by a short hike along Butorowy Rib for spectacular views. Ride back down to Zakopane on a chairlift, and enjoy a break for lunch and shopping on the popular commercial street of Krupówki (own expense). On the way out of town, stop to see two more local highlights — the log cabin–style Jaszczurówka Chapel and a ski jump popular with locals during wintertime.

    Your full-day country escape concludes with drop-off back in central Kraków in the late afternoon.

    We went on a Monday and were told there were no English guides on that day. The Auschwitz- Birkinau trip, without a guide, is useless as the the two places are huge and really require a guide to lead you through. You might as well...More
