Trip to Zakopane

Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains is a city called the “winter capital” of Poland, famous resort visited by the most eminent citizens of Poland, among them Nobel prize winners such as Maria Skłodowska-Curie, Lech Wałęsa, Wisława Szymborska, Czesław Miłosz. John Paul II was also passionate about the Tatra’s and stayed here during his pilgrimage in 1997.
Winter sports fans have an acces to a very popular Kasprowy Wierch peak as well as other parts of Tatra Mountains with a range of ski slopes. No matter if you prefer skiing , snowboarding or cross-country skiing- your visit here will be a great experience! If you are lucky you might even meet some Polish championships on your way- Justyna Kowalczyk or Kamil Stoch .
The FIS Ski Jumping World Cup are held on the Wielka Krokiew ski jump. You can get on top of it by a cablecar . Take a glance from a start bar and you will get an impression of how does competitors (for ex. Adam Małysz) feel before jumping. If you are in a lazy mood hop on a dog sled, a sleigh or a cab for a ride.
Summer is perfect for hiking. The Giewont mountain in a shape of a  sleeping knight is a symbol of Zakopane. There are many hiking trails for more or less experienced tourists. The most beautiful are the Kościeliska Valley with caves and a trail to the biggest Morskie Oko lake. Do not be surprised that if you get off the beaten tracks a brown bear crosses your path!
The city centre is also worth a visit! The Krupówki mall is rather commercialized but you can still buy here some traditional hand made wooden or leather items. At the end of the walkway you can jump in to a cablecar and reach the Gubałówka peak. Take a brake here, relax lying down on a deckchair and admire beautiful surroundings. Another option to consider are go- karts or a ropes course.
My favourite spots in Zakopane are the Kościeliska street and the Kuźnice district. Traditional mountain chalets and villas, the oldest church of Zakopane with a Meritorious Cemetary on Pęksowy Brzyzek are a must see! You will step back in time  when visiting the “Atma Villa”where a famous  Polish composer  Karol Szymanowski used to live as well as the “Koliba Villa – a branch of the Tatra Museum with a 19th century architecture, equipment and ambient.
Do not forget to devour a tasty local cheese –oscypek, a slice of bread with lard and sour cucumber, meat and sauerkraut soup (kwaśnica) and a waffle with fresh fruits& whipped cream to spoil yourself totally J
