Zakopane Travel Guide: 371 reviews and 892 photos

Spent 3 nights in Zakopane in May 2005 -- travelled by bus from Bielsko-Biala. The scenery in the nearby mountains and valleys is absolutely stunning -- it was my first visit to the Tatry and although the weather wasn't too kind (rain and mist for a couple of days) it didn't diminish the impression the scenery made on me -- I hope to go back again before too long and maybe next time have some clear skies to see the full range of mountain peaks.

My Intro photo is the view to your left as you walk along ul. Kosciuszki, the main road from the bus/train stations into Zakopane centre.

    Lovely overview of Zakopane, Ben. Thank you for all your suggestions. I'm on my way to Poland... and Zakopane in a couple of weeks. First time to the Tatras.

    Hello Paul! I was in Zakopane in 1976 bit it doesn't seem to have changed much since then. A good page with lovely pictures. Happy birthday from Finland!

    Lovely pictures and useful tips, Paul. Zakopane is an wonderful destination. Unfortunately I've stayed there only for a night and haven't got time to explore.
