Very Good

A bit overcrowded but it could be due to unfortunate timing.... we arrived shortly after new year for a long weekend and there was still a lot of Tourists. We were queuing even to a grocery store. Apart from that this is a great city to relax and enjoy Tatra mountains

As the town itself is swarmed with masses of tourists, I found it rather unappealing. It is a great starting place for skiing and for hiking trips however, with lots of sport shops.

The place is very picturesque, friendly people, good restaurants and would recommend anyone to visit. Difficult to navigate around the area with signage, especially in the snow and very cold conditions.

Nice town with beautiful views and plenty places for rest. But i think for skill-riders ski slopes are not interesting. Visit Morskie Oko when the weather is fine!

Zakopane is a beautiful town surrounded by mountains and perfect for skiing for beginners. But the weather can be extremely cold. It was -20 degree celcius when I visited there last week.

Zakopane is a lovely place with lots of nice shops, restaurants and things to do. We came here on a skiing trip as beginners and it is a perfect place to learn how to ski. The only thing we struggled with was the language barrier.

Depends on the season. The best place for people loving winter sports, hiking, Polish cuisine, and the atmosphere of the great Tatrzanski National Park.

Recommended in Zakopane

Try to avoid the main touristic trails (especially the one going to morskie oko, there is one asphalted road going there but it's really crowded which ruins the mountain experience) and try to have a location where you can start your hike at the hotel so you can leave your car. parking areas are very crowded (we had a 2h traffic jam to get on the parking to the morskie oko trail) and the roads in zakopane are in general very crowded

If you are planning mountain trips, remember to wake up early:) This way you can try to avoid crowds (thought there will always be a smaller or bigger crowd in popular places;) for example: Kasprowy Wierch Mountain, Morskie Oko, Giewont Mountain- it is worth to start those trips around 8 in the morning.

There are a number of thermal baths but the best is Terma Bukovina. There are regular buses plying from Zakopane to Bukovina takes around 30 minutes to reach. Take the whole day pass for 97 zł and have a great time in the hot outdoor pool with the snow falling around you.

Wide range of slopes within easy driving distance from centre of town. Very reasonable in price, on and off the slopes

ALWAYS check the weather on day of excursion!!! it can change though, but better be safe then sorry

Booking.com asked travelers...

Why do you recommend Zakopane for food?

Value for money and very tasty

Like anywhere else in Europe.
