Zakopane City Tour

Every year many tourists visit Zakopane which is one of the most popular destinations in the country. It is winter and hiking capital of Poland but there are also other attractions in the city worth seeing which we offer in this tour. Some of them are related with sport, art, others with religion, tradition and folklore. Zakopane is especially famous for its beautiful mountains and folklore, which you will not be able to meet anywhere else in Poland. Cheerful music, special dialect, ways of behaviour, regional costumes, tasty cuisine and original architecture of the Highlanders. Once you join us on this tour, you will have a chance to feel the spirit of the Tatra Mountains.
