Zakopane

Zakopane - a highland capital of Poland, a centre of active leisure and recreation, lying in the shadow of the Tatras, at the foot of the majestic, cross-crowned Giewont welcomes everyone both in summer as well as in winter. From Zakopane you can set off for both short, beautiful walks to the picturesque valleys of the Tatras as well as long mountain hikes as far as the rocky mountain peaks. Also, in winter, you cannot fail to be entertained here. The famous routes from Kasprowy Wierch, where snow sometimes remains till May, are a real challenge for skiers. For those less adept at winter sports there awaits a number of easier slopes, where even a total beginner can take their first skiing steps under the experienced instructors’ tutelage. Zakopane also owes its fame to Stanisław Witkiewicz, father of Witkacy, who lived here since 1890.
