mountains in Zakopane

mountains in ZakopaneZakopane is located in the south of Poland, about 100 km from Krakow. It's a good place to go for a beautiful panorama on the Tatra mountains. The cable train down at Krupowki Street will take you to the Gubalowka summit at 1120 m. Here are some restaurants and souvenir shops that can be a bit crowded on some days, but the views over the mountains are impressive. You can return by a walk down through the woods or by chair lift. There are two different lifts going down. Just follow the road on the top to the left, the first one is 15 min walking and the second one is just a bit more far. Keep in mind that if you arrive down by chair lift there is a not so nice walk back to the centre on a busy road.
