  Horse-drawn transport from Morskie Oro to Palenica
by barryg23

There are fairly frequent buses to Polana Palenica, close to the popular Morskie Oro Lake in the High Tatras. We ended our hike in the Tatras at Polana Palinaca, though we didn't get a chance to see the lake, unfortunately.

The bus between Zakopane and Polana Palenaca costs 6 Zl and it takes a fair while to get there - it seemed to go by a very circuitous route. We didn't mind so much as we were completely exhausted after all the hiking.

It's also worth pointing out that it's a 9km walk from Palenica to the Morskie Oro lake. The only alternative is to take a horse drawn carriage up though I believe this is quite expensive.
