Zakopane is a picturesque town located in the Polish Tatra Mountains, famous for its beautiful landscapes, mountain trails and rich highlander culture. It is a popular tourist destination, both in summer and winter.

The city is surrounded by the impressive peaks of the Tatra Mountains, such as Giewont, Kasprowy Wierch and Rysy. It is a paradise for lovers of mountain hiking, skiing and other winter sports. There are many hiking trails around Zakopane that lead to beautiful valleys, lakes and waterfalls.

Zakopane is also known for its unique highlander culture. The inhabitants of this region, called Highlanders, have their own traditions, customs, music and dances. You can find many shops with highlander handicrafts, where you can buy original wooden and leather products or embroidered clothes.

In the city center there is a famous promenade, called Krupówki, full of shops, restaurants and cafes. It is a popular place for both tourists and locals, where you can try local delicacies, such as oscypek (traditional highlander cheese) or traditional highlander cuisine.

Zakopane is also the host of many sports and cultural events, such as the Nordic World Ski Championships or the International Film Music Festival. Many people also come here for the annual ski jumping competitions on Wielka Krokiew.

To sum up, Zakopane is a charming place that offers both beautiful mountain views and the opportunity to get acquainted with highlander culture. It is a popular destination for both nature lovers and those looking for an active holiday in the mountains.


Zakopane is a place that is remembered for its unique charm. When I appear there, I immediately feel wrapped in mountain air and the beauty of nature. The view of the majestic peaks of the Tatra Mountains makes a huge impression and makes a person feel small compared to the power of nature.

Walking along Krupówki, among the crowds of people and historic wooden buildings, you can feel the pulse of the city and the energy that lies in it. Handmade highlander products in shops, the aroma of oscypek cheese and sour soup, original highlander music - all this creates a unique atmosphere.

Hiking along mountain trails not only gives you the opportunity to admire breathtaking landscapes, but also allows you to break away from everyday life and immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of nature. Hours of climbing to the top are rewarded with amazing panoramas and a feeling of accomplishment.

Zakopane comes alive especially in winter, when the whole city turns into a snowy land. Skiers and snowboarders come here to ski down the slopes of Kasprowy Wierch or Gubałówka. The atmosphere on the slopes is full of joy and enthusiasm, and evening skiing on illuminated slopes is unforgettable.

One of the most memorable moments is meeting the highlanders. Their colorful costumes, characteristic dialects and hospitality make people feel welcome and invited to learn about their culture.

It is an extraordinary experience that is worth experiencing.

Zakopane is a place where you can both rest and relax among the beauty of nature, as well as actively spend time on sports challenges. It is a unique combination of nature, culture and tradition that stays with you long after you leave this magical place.
