Most people who visit Tatrzański Park Narodowy take their accommodation in Zakopane, which lies at the foot of the mountains. Once a small and obscure mountain village Zakopane has now become probably the most famous Polish mountain resort for both summer and winter holidays. Finding accommodation in Zakopane is usually easy. The place is full of hotels and guesthouses of various sorts. Also almost every private house in the region offers separate guest rooms charging anything from about $10 up per night. If you arrive in Zakopane by bus or by train, you'll most probably be approached by people offering you 'Pokoje' (Rooms) or asking 'Potrzebujecie pokoju?' (Do you need a room?) If you accept they will usually provide you with transportation as well. However, always check the exact location of the house before you take the room or else you might end up miles from the centre (Krupówki) or even outside Zakopane. And the guys will always say it's not far, so it's best to consult the map first and set the price in advance. Usually the longer you stay the lower price you can bargain.

Unique Qualities: Taking a guest room might be a good way to meet some 'Górale' - mountaineers, famous for their shrewdness, temperament and liking for spirits. There might be problems with communication, though. In the pictures you'll see the house in which we found a double room, quite basic and far from the centre but incredibly cheap, with beautiful view from the window, from which we could gaze at Giewont.
