Zakopane and the Tatra Mountains

The city of Krakow lies only 100 kilometers away from the rocky Tatra mountains, the highest, alpine-like mountain range in Poland. Its main city, Zakopane, often called “the winter capital of Poland”, is situated in a picturesque valley at the foot of the Tatra mountains.

During your tour you can choose to explore the Tatra National Park by taking an enjoyable walk along one of its picturesque valleys or discover the charm of the old Zakopane, take a look at extraordinary mountaineer wooden architecture and become acquainted with the exceptionally rich local culture.
The most regular tour includes the transfer to Zakopane and the sightseeing of the most interesting examples of wooden architecture in the city and the surrounding villages.
Among these are the originally preserved wooden buildings in Chocholow, dating back to the 19. century, and the village of Witow with a charming wooden church of Our Lady of the Scapular. Both villages can be visited on the way to our winter capital.
Before reaching the center of Zakopane you will see the famous papal Sanctuary of our Lady of Fatima in Krzeptowki, located at the foot of the magnificent massif of „the Sleeping Knight”, as the Giewont mountain is often referred to.
When in Zakopane, you will have a chance to explore both the tourist highlights of the city as well as less popular places of high cultural value. The former include a walk along the famous street of Krupowki, always crowded and bustling with life, and a visit to the colourful outdoor fair of highland products at the foot of the Gubalowka mountain.
As well as this, we would like to show you a historical cemetery of Peksowy Brzyzek commemorating many distinguished people for the region of Podhale and the Tatra mountains and Zakopane's oldest wooden church of Our Lady.
We also recommend to see the Koliba, the first Zakopane-style villa designed by Stanisław Witkiewicz, outstanding Polish artist and creator of this unique architectural style. The tour of Zakopane could not be complete without sightseeing the famous „Wielka Krokiew”, the biggest ski-jumping ramp in Poland, and a visit to the chapel of Jaszczurowka, another masterpiece of the local wooden architecture designed by Stanislaw Witkiewicz.
On your request, our tours of the Tatra mountains may also be accompanied by hiking excursions supervised by licensed Tatra guides, sleigh rides, highlander-style feasts and bonfires, culinary workshops aimed to explore the variety of the distictive Podhale cuisine, and many other attractions.
