    We visited Zakopane on a day trip from Krakow in early October and looked at getting the cable car up the mountain. Uncertain what day we were actually going, we did not book the cable car in advance....this is a must really as when we finally got there after a 2 hour coach ride and a 40 minute walk through the town, we found a massive queue and waited the best part of 2 1/2 hours in the queue with no guarantee that we would actually get up the mountain. The area is well served with food and drink outlets, so in relays (not losing space in the queue, we were fed, watered and used the amenities. However we were fortunate and once on the cable car, which is very quick, efficient and modern with each car holding about 60 people, had a fabulous visit and the view from the top was amazing, with mist rolling in across the mountains. Well worth the very long day...just pre-book if possible.

    Great place to visit. Gubalowka has nice views. You can go by cable car or can hike or just walk.There are many souvenir and food shops. Here you can find, for example, sheeps products. The prices are great. You can visit and feed the alpacas.

    Lot’s of shops, cafes and restaurants. We had some nice meals and ice cream. However it is very crowded, so if you’re in a hurry don’t go.

    Giewont mountain is one of main popular in Polish Tatra mountains. Personally I like other places more as this is quite busy trail. I reccommend getting up early and starting climbing with sunrise.

    Such a quirky graveyard and each one so individual and unusual. Superb carvings and ornamental adornments to all giving each a true meaning presumably to the person buried below. Not your usual boring slab style for sure.

    It's worth a stop. Very nice chapel in pretty location with statue of John Paul II in front. Lovely altar and stained glass.

    We already visited Wielka Krokiew few years back, we even writen review here on TripAdvisor, but due to some works being done to the jumping hill back then, it wasn't a full experience. In september 2019 we did go back to Wielka Krokiew, and this time we saw everything, at least we think so. Lots of changes happened in the meantime around those facilities, with a main one - the whole complex has been fenced out, so now there's only one way in, on the axis of the jumping hill, straight from Czecha/Piłsudskiego streets junction. Ther are gates that put many people off, but those are open for anyone, unless there's an event going on on jumping hill stadium, then it is with tickets only. So, we did go in, and first we went to see a small exhibition on life and career of Stanisław Marusarz, Polish ski jumper, having peak of his career in the thirties of 20th century - Wielka Krokiew ski jumoing hill is named after him. After visiting this small museum, we went to the bottom station of ski lift (tickets) to the top of the jumping hill, passing a place, where one can get into a large inflated tube and slight down the super steep landing part of the hill. Three different lengths of the slide are available, all of them not for fainthearted. Nothing for me. Ski lift has only been in use since 2008, which means before that all athletes had to walk to the top of the hill - I can't even imagine, how exhausted they were, before even taking their part in the competitions. Short ride on the lift, and then, here we are, we on top of the ski jumping hill Wielka Krokiew, with amazing views over the whole town. Absolutelly worth a visit, prices are not so high, and the view is superb. If only they organised things a little, on their premises within new fence, such as put some signposts to direct people to those two obiects: museum and ski lift, and above all - put signs "open" on those gates at the front, so people would know they can go in.

    Nice little chapel, but we didn't see it at its best, on a winter afternoon with the light fading, but the snow made it special. Some carved work inside.

    Tough hike, especially in the winter, with the snow and ice under foot. From the town centre, it took us 5 hours round trip. It cost us 8 zloty per person to enter the park. Walking sticks would have helped, as would have spikes on our hiking boots, and yet we still made it to the top, where the views of Zakopane and the Tatras made the effort worthwhile. Take food and drink with you, as there is none to buy. And make sure to give yourself p
