Zakopane and Tatra Mountains Day Trip from Krakow
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Well, Krupowki street is the 'main' street in Zakopane and full of tourists, shops and - of course - souvenirs!

The restaurant we went to there was very atmospheric and we really enjoyed soaking up the holiday spirit... BUT the food there was expensive and terrible! blergh! A lot of the restaurants on that street are actually owned by the same franchise/ownership/mafia (??) and are not the best choice... in my opinion.

Check the prices around, and also check that the mountain cheese is actually the original, genuine product because its only actually genuine for half of the year (because thats how lon they produce it for).

I bought an umberella on krupowski and the sellers were friendly and it was reasonably priced - but be careful ;) My boyfriend is Polish and maybe for foreign tourists the prices might change.

I really liked the atmosphere of the street. However I wouldn't recommend staying there after dark as it seems a tad unsafe. Apart from that I loved all the different restaurants and stalls. I would also advise that before you buy something, check the prices everywhere as they varied. In one stall they were selling teddybears for 50zl, and in another the same ones were 30zl.

It's a joke - cheesy, architecture is without any clue (some exception though could be found). Clubs and discos there - disaster. Luckily there are few nice restaurants in the area. I was there off season (this time) and during the season (previous time). Only thing different is taht during season it's swarming with tourists, which makes it even more pathetic.

This is a stretch with lots of shops. You can pretty find everything your looking for. Good place to by gifts for others and lots of tourist souvenirs. If you get hungry there are many places to eat, from a quick zapiakanka to a sit down meal. Also on this strip they have bungee jumping, if you ever wanted to try it.

Overall all this is mostly shops. The place is usually very busy and crowded. But it's worth checking out and buying some souvineers.

A fantastic place to stroll and browse. Busy but worth jostling in the crowds to look at the markets and buildings
