"Moving on from Zakopane" Zakopane Transportation Tip by barryg23

Zakopane Transportation: 26 reviews and 31 photos

There are regular connections from Zakopane to other towns in the region and to further afield. After Zakopane, our next destination was Tatranska Lomnica in the Slovakian High Tatras. We left all our planning until the last minute when we arrived at the bus station. Our first idea was to get a bus to Lysa Polana, the border crossing, and then catch a bus on the Slovakian side.

However, the nice girl at the tourist information in the bus station in Zakopane advised us to wait an hour and catch the bus to Poprad which stopped at Tatranska Lomnica. There are only two of these buses a day (at 7.10 and 13:05) so we were lucky we had timed it right. I was glad we skipped Lysa Polana as it didn't look like the nicest place, especially in the heavy rain, and we would probably have had to wait a while for an onward connection.
