Zakopane, Poland
Europe/Warsaw timezone


A tour is planned for Wednesday (see the timetable).

Three excursion options:

  1. Guided tour of Zakopane. A short walk around Zakopane, Poland's best-known mountain resort. In the past, when Poland was partitioned, Zakopane played the role of the cultural capital of nonexistent Poland. Therefore we will see some examples of local wooden folk architecture and houses built in the so-called Zakopane Style. We will see the oldest monuments of Zakopane including the Old Church and the Old Cemetary ending our walk on the modern and vibrant main street - Krupówki.
  2. A longer hike in the Tatra Mountains. Starting from a suburb called Toporowa Cyrhla we will ascend to the clearing and summit of Wielki Kopieniec. From there down to Olczyska Clearing with a massive karst spring there. After a break a short walk to Nosalowa Pass and an optional ascent to the summit of Nosal. Return via Kuźnice or Murowanica, passing by the complex of ski jumping hills on the slopes of Wielka Krokiew.
  3. A shorter hike in the Tatra Mountains (Białego valley - Sarnia skała - Strążyska valley).
