Founded in the 16th century on seasonal shepherd settlements it has evolved into an impressive city through the years.
Iddylic views of the mountains, ever so close to nature, unique architectural style, lots of hiking tracks and ski slopes – all of which make Zakopane the most popular destination if you’re looking for a place to relax and escape from buzz of the city.
On the route to Zakopane we’ll stop in Chochołów – the wooden village. People still live there in the original wooden houses built by the Polish highlanders, which are under the patronage of UNESCO. You will get a chance to go inside one of them to experience how people used to live. After that we will visit a Bacowka (traditional shepherd’s hut) where you will have a chance to try famous regional cheese – Oscypek and see how it is prepared.
The Zakopane tour starts out with a breathtaking panorama of the Tatra Mountains, viewed from the top of the Gubalowka Hill, and a fanicular will take you there.
Next you will explore the local old-school bazaar and Krupowki Street – filled with restaurants, local stores and regional goods, as well as gift shops. After lunch we will head back to Krakow, passing the famous ski jump and entering a quaint wooden church on the outskirts of Zakopane.
