Only alpine mountains in Poland
Aug 2020
Definitely very best place to hike for me. The only alpine mountains in Poland with altitude 2000 m+.
On season (May - October) very, very crowded, especially on weekends, but if you're not going to the most popular trails and peaks (Morskie Oko, Kasprowy Wierch, Orla Perć, Giewont), there are many less crowded trails, and some of them are so wild that you can meet 5-10 people in 3 hours of hiking.
Entrance to the national park costs 6 pln (~$2) and it's definitely worth it. I recommend going everywhere by bus (but drivers often don't speak English), because parkings are expensive (20 pln for one day ~$5.5).
Just avoid crowded trails and enjoy one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Forests and ridges are relatively clean, because park's volunteers are cleaning it up very often, so don't litter.

a beautiful walk to a stunning mountain lake - Morskie Oko
Sep 2019
Morskie Oko is reached via a 10 km gently graded paved pathway with occasional opportunities to take short cuts on paths of large smooth stones. Along the way you will see wildlife of all kinds if you keep a keen eye - beautiful birds, perhaps a deer, colorful mushrooms, brilliant ferns. Always along the side are tall dark pines and waterfalls and above you the jagged Tatra peaks flirting with clouds and Rybi Potok (Fish Brook) way below the trail. Of course the turquoise Morksie Ono, is the prime attraction. If the walk is too much you can also take a horsedrawn carriage for 30 PLN one way. YOU WILL HAVE COMPANY on this adventure. The pathway is crowded with folks of all ages out to take in the mountain air and experience the beauty of the Tatras. This is not really a problem and you can admire the Poles for their energy and zest. The parking lots and margins of the roads leading to the park entrance are chock-a-block. A better idea would be to leave your car in town and grab one of the frequent vans which shuttle from Zakopane to the park trailhead. There are two places to buy food and drink - one at the end of the horse track and one overlooking Morskie Oko itself. Would like to have hiked more - at least the path around the lake - but it didn't fit our plans.

This area is a hidden gem.
Firstly, one must visit the tourist office in Tatranska Lominica.
The staff are wonderful; the amount of information (largely free)( excellent.
They have details of he many places one can visit in this unique region.

Our trip started in Krakow and then we drove down to the beautiful Tatra Mountains. We enjoyed them from both Poland and Slovakia and I would most definitely recommend.

Fantastic places to eat, hike, swim and ski (season depending)!

Paradise in Poland
Jun 2019
Paradise for nature-lovers! Do put this on your itinerary if you find yourself in Poland. My two cents worth - Don't short-change yourself by doing a day tour, spend 2-3 days in Zakopane (or more!) and explore the glorious mountain range and the various trails it has to offer. Nothing beats the experience and views from amidst the mountains.

A long drive
Jul 2019
Fantastic views from the top of the mountain but a three hour drive there and a two and a half drive back to Krakow in the afternoon took some of shine off .Also somewhat crowded at the top . If you go take the funicular railway to the top , the walk up in the best is not for the faint hearted .

Awesome view

We booked tickets for the cablecar in advance as the queue was very long, a must unless you enjoy queueing for a while.

During the cable car ride and the walks above provided a magnificent view of the landscape, plus the weather was perfect.

A must see.

stunning scenery as good as the swiss alps any day friendly people and cheap for us brits will certainly go again sky lifts work all year round so you can still get to the top of the mountains if you don't want to walk.
