We invite you to visit Zakopane – the winter capital of Poland located at the foot of the Tatra Mountains, with breathtaking views and picturesque natural landscapes that are enchanting not only in winter but at every time of the year! Captivating scenery, characteristic folk culture, highlander-style cuisine, numerous tourist trails and ski routes – all of this contributes to the richness of Zakopane, which is the most popular mountain tourist resort in Poland. The trip starts with a visit to the Museum of the 1846 Chochołów Uprising, located in a historic wooden cottage, which is a typical example of the Tatra architecture. The participants learn about the history of the famous Uprising and discover the daily life of 19th-century highland families. Next stop is near the former border crossing Chochołów – Sucha Hora, which marks the current border between Poland and Slovakia. It provides an excellent occasion to get to know more about one of Poland’s neighbors. Next, the group is scheduled to visit a typical sheepherders cabin where the participants will be able to taste the traditional smoked cheese called ‘oscypek’. The next point of our program is a stop by ski jumping hills – The Great Krokiew and The Small Krokiew. The participants of the tour will have a chance to learn more about the role of winter sports in the development of tourism in Zakopane. After that, a cable car will take them straight to the top of Gubałówka hill to catch a breathtaking view of the granite and limestone peaks of the Tatras. During their ‘spare time’ tourist can stay on Mount Gubałówka or ride down to the huge regional market square and eat dinner in one of the restaurants offering local delicacies.
