“You don't have to climb it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

Look right when you're facing up in Krupowki and you should see it: a resting warrior ready to jump up and defend Poland from the enemy. He hasn't done it yet....

“See Zakopane and Tatras from Giewont”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

If you are ever visiting Zakopane or Krakow (100 km from Zakopane) spend half a day to conquer the peak of Giewont. The path starts by the foot of the mountain just outside the center of Zakopane. It is well prepared and easy to walk and as it gets steeper you will find steps to walk. You actually enter the top from the "back side" and as you reach the top the view of Zakopane and the valley below is just amazing. If in decent shape you will need two hours to the top. The return is half an hour shorter. Reserve another hour for a tasty sausage and a fresh polish beer from one of the numerous grills in the center
