Winter trip to Zakopane

What a great view Slovakia/Poland border at the top of the mountain. Undisturbed natural snow trekking. Beautiful simple houses all the way.

Took a day trip to the mountains and was very impressed by the awesome train connecting services from Poprad-Tatry via the TEZ railway to the 3 key mountain stops. We took a day pass for 4 Euros. Did the cableway to Lomnicky (I think that's how it's spelt?) to view the highest point at 2634m above ground and it was... More

Tatra Mountains are split by the border into two parts: much bigger on Slovak side, and smaller in Poland. Both parts are protected as national parks. Polish Park has got it's headquarters in Zakopane, a town dubbed as Winter Capital of Poland. Many marked trails, some of them, those leading to highest peaks, require some level of exercise. Great views... More

What a great view. From Shetland ponies to hot wine, at 10 thousand feet up you can't ask for much more. Lot of Christmas vendor's. Sleigh rides, with polish traditional dress. A must see

Arriving in Poprad we decided to stay at the hotel next to the railway station but it would have been better to have found a hotel in Stary Smokovec. The train from Poprad only takes 30 min and you are right in the mountain area. Poprad itself is very uninspiring. We decided to travel to Zakopane in Poland. The bus... More

Instead of taking the wagon, we chose to walk all the way up and all the way down. I regret nothing, even though my muscles were sour for the next 4 days. Weather was fantastic for such climb, but it would have been tricky with rain. Take a coat - it's a bit frosty up there. Excellent idea to offer... More

It's better to avoid most popular and crowded paths especially that rarely visited paths and places are as much beautiful and dont be one of unprepared fools without proper shoes and equipment. If you will meet those conditions you can experiance true spirit of Tatras Mountains.
