Tatra Railway Station Zakopane

Budynek znajdujący się w Zakopanem przy ulicy Krupówki 12. Pełnił funkcję pierwszego zakopiańskiego domu kultury. Nigdy nie był dworcem kolejowym, stacja kolejowa w Zakopanem znajduje się w zupełnie innej części miasta. Budowę rozpoczęto w 1880 roku.
Krupówki 12, 34-500 Zakopane Tourist region: Tatry i Podhale

The building was erected near Krupówki on the initiative of the Tatra Society in 1881; it housed the offices of the Society, a library with a reading room and a ballroom.
Lectures, concerts and theatre performances were held there, too. The famous personages performing there included Mieczysław Karłowicz, Helena Modrzejewska, Ignacy Jan Paderewski and Henryk Sienkiewicz. When the building burnt down completely during one of the Carnival revelries at the beginning of the new millennium, a decision was made to restore it as a brick building. In the rebuilt Railway Station, a restaurant was additionally opened – it became a favourite meeting place for Zakopane elites. Today the Tatra Railway Station houses the offices of the Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society (PTTK) and the Circle of Tatra Guides.
