Full-Day Trip to Zakopane from Krakow
Experience the culture and fresh air of the Polish highlands, from the vigorous city center to the medieval churches and majestic mountain views. After arriving in Zakopane, enjoy a cable car ride up the Gubałówka Mountain and then a walk along its rib to Butorowy Wierch Mountain. Next, go down a chairlift to take a walk around the Old Town of Zakopane and visit an ancient cemetery, The Tatra Museum, Villa Koliba, and the Jaszczurówka Chapel. After a lunch break, visit Krupówki, which is the main, commercial street in Zakopane. On the way back to Kraków, pay a visit to Chochołów, where you can admire the unique 19th century wooden houses.
After approximately a 2-hour bus drive (with a short break after 1 hour), we will stop in the village of Chochołów, where you will have time to admire the wooden houses from the 19th century made without using a single nail. If we are lucky, we can also visit the workshop of a local artist.
From Chochołów, we will head next to Zakopane. Leaving the bus in the city center, we will walk for a few minutes along one of main streets of the city to Villa Koliba, the Museum of Architecture Style of Zakopane. After a 1-hour visit at the museum, we will go to see the oldest wooden church in Zakopane and the ancient cemetery. Assisted by our guide, we will then take a funicular ride up Gubałówka Hill. If the weather is good, you can admire a wonderful view of the Tatry Mountains.
Next, we will go on a 20-minute walk through Butorowy Rib to take a chairlift to return down to Zakopane. After a 1.5-hour break for lunch and shopping on Krupówki, a commercial street in Zakopane, we will get back on the bus and go see the ski jump, one of the most popular places for winter sports in Poland. We will then end the tour with seeing the wooden Jaszczurówka Chapel.
