Zakopane Travel Guide: 370 reviews and 891 photos

Zakopane is the little town at the base of the Tatra Mountains. Skiing and hiking are the prime reasons why people come here but the unique wooden architecture and the atmosphere of the place are charming as well. Though the real skiers may be disappointed.

    Loved the photos, especially the ice climbing - crazy! Wonderful panoramas in Things to Do tips but would have liked to know where they were as I plan to head over next year.
