Zakopane is the most popular holiday destination in all of Poland, attracting three million visitors annually. It is often referred to as Poland's winter capital but it really has no off-season. The hiking trails and world-class ski slopes make it a tourism destination year-round, with numerous other outdoor activities available including climbing, ice skating, rafting and paragliding to name a few. Many people just come to Zakopane because of the charm of the town and the splendid natural scenery. When walking around this magical place you often feel like you have stepped back in time.
The main thoroughfare of Zakopane that cuts through the town is Krupowki street. This is the center of Zakopane tourist life and can be a bit overwhelming at times, with tacky shops and street performers, but it also offers a number of good restaurant and nightlife options. Once off this street you can enjoy the classic surroundings of elegant wooden villas and mansions as well as a handful of museums. Zakopane offers a true Polish dining experience with several themed restaurants serving up hearty dishes that fit right in with the rustic surroundings.
