Zakopane Sights

Zakopane is the most popular holiday destination in all of Poland. It attracts 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. There are numerous other outdoor activities available. You could climb, ice skate, raft and paraglide, 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.

Zakopane Tourism

The main thoroughfare of Zakopane that cuts through the town is Krupowki street. This is the center of Zakopane tourist life. It can be a bit overwhelming at times, with tacky shops and street performers. But Zakopane also offers a number of good restaurant and nightlife options. Once off this street you can enjoy elegant wooden villas and mansions. There are also a handful of museums. Zakopane offers a true Polish dining experience. Visit the several themed restaurants serving up hearty dishes that fit right in with the rustic surroundings. Zakopane is the ideal place for a mountain vacation. Stop by between visits to Krakow, Katowice and other great Polish destinations.

It was really smooth and easy working with JayWay Travel to plan the trip. JayWay Travel set up comfortable accommodations that were centrally located.   The transfers they arranged to/from airports and train stations made it really easy to travel to different cities.

What I love about Zakopane...

“What I love about Zakopane is waking up to the most amazing view - the Tatra Mountains almost within your reach. I love the hiking trails, the feeling like you're at the top of the world once you reach a peak and breathe in the freshest air you can find in the whole of Poland.”
