Weekend around Zakopane

Weekend around Zakopane

Zakopane is a place where you cannot run out of things to do. The same goes for its surrounding areas, particularly the majestic Tatra Mountains, which are a perfect tourist destination in the summer and winter. In the town itself you can find the original, wooden Podhale-style buildings. Taking a trip through Podhale, which is one of the most important tourist regions in Poland, you can encounter many precious monuments, e.g. a small UNESCO-listed church in Dębno Podhalańskie, as well as the great castles in Czorsztyn and Niedzica, which lie above the waters of the Czorsztyńskie Lake. (In the summer swimming areas are created around the lake along with places where you can hire water sports equipment.) The biggest attraction of the Pieniny is rafting down the Dunajec river gorge. Water forcing its way through rocky walls creates an unforgettable landscape. In the winter, Zakopane offers high-quality ski slopes, including the famous runs on the slopes of Kasprowy Wierch, Gubałówka, Szymoszkowa, and Antałówka. Other local towns also known among ski lovers are Białka Tatrzańska and Kluszkowce. When you are finished skiing, you can have a rest in the modern, recently opened baths with thermal waters. Such baths can also be found in Zakopane, Bukowina Tatrzańska and in Biały Dunajec.
