Travelling with children to Zakopane


we are heading off next week, husband, me and 3 children ages 8,6 and 4 to Poland. We will be staying in Tarnow and Krakow.

I have used the train between Tarnow and Krakow and found it fine, however when we go to Zakopane it will be from Tarnow. Should we get train to Krakow then bus to Zakopane or hire a taxi or any other combination.

Help........... the play in the snow (if there is any) is the carrot at the end of the stick for the wee ones but thinking long journeys on public transport versus cost of taxi..........

Well, best public transport option I saw was 3h30m by coach, with a change in Krakow, if that helps...
