Zakopane ski resort (Poland, Małopolskie Voivodeship) – reviews

My husband and I decided to go to Zakopane Ski Resort (Poland, Małopolskie Voivodeship).

During the New Year holidays we vacationed in Poland. One of our vacation spots was the Zakopane ski resort, located in the High Tatras Mountains, on the border of Poland with Slovakia. Zakopane is a small cozy town. In the city.

The best pistes according to the feelings of a beginner.

Last year I went skiing for the first time. I did not have much time to ski because of traveling, but I still bought a ski suit) The beginning of this year I planned to spend somewhere warm a la.

Unforgettable place!

Hello to all the readers of my review! I, unfortunately, rarely travel, just do not have free time for it or the desire does not always coincide with the possibilities. But here it happened, and it happens very rarely, we have.

A resort with a fascinating nature.

Driving up a couple of kilometers to the resort, the sight pleases, majesty and beauty of the mountains that greet you with their mesmerizing, natural beauty. Driving into the town of Zakopane, you feel the comfort and not a real comfort, it is located at the foot.

It’s a good place for New Year’s Eve.

They say it is the winter capital of Poland. In general – the village, but nice, cozy, pleasant, all in lights and lights. The hotels are mostly 2-4 storey, like the residential buildings, wooden. It is beautiful there. But as a ski resort.

Jamaica. Geography of Jamaica

New Year’s Capital of Poland – that says it all!

The Tatras, views, mountains, cheapness, a minimum of Russian tourists, friendliness of the local population, the absence of the language barrier, very tasty cuisine.

A wonderful cozy place to get out of Megapolis with family or friends. A place where the warmth of coziness in winter. Houses in the Gural style – that’s the real flavor, the streets are decorated, in the center of Krupowka there is a church with a working one.

Christmas Adventures in Zakopane

I will tell you about our trip to Zakopane Poland, which turned out quite unexpectedly. Actually we were going to spend Christmas in the Carpathians somewhere in Dragobrat, but when we called hotels in this resort, we realized that spending 4 days on the road and paying.

Rest for the active

Unfortunately, the moderators of the site did not let me open a separate thread about New Year’s Poland. There is New Year’s Czech Republic, Germany, Austria and Italy. But there is no Poland. You should not underestimate Poland as a New Year’s vacation. So I will tell you about it.

Perfect vacation for the whole family.

We decided to go somewhere to rest in winter. Our choice was the Polish ski resort Zakopane. So by car with the kids will not go far. I should say at once we liked it very much. Approaching the town offers very beautiful views, the road.

A winter fairy tale.

Went to the new year with his family. We loaded skis/sticks into the car and rushed. Snow fell in Zakopane two days before our arrival, and it fell a month’s norm. Very nice, pleasant town, pretty quiet (except for New Year’s Eve)).

Very nice, beautiful, nice ski resort.

One day I decided to try my hand at snowboarding. I went to the ski resort of Zakopane. I managed because the slopes there were not too steep. I had a very comfortable accommodation. Low prices are nice.

Maastricht, Middelburg, Marken. Interesting cities in Holland, Netherlands

For recreation and sports – the best, you can not argue.

Very much! 1. The gorgeous nature 2. The mountains around give some inspiration – will appeal to all artists or fanfiction writers :”) 3. I could list the pluses ad infinitum. It’s not enough!

To say it’s good here is to say nothing. For athletes, in which case I was – chic. Jogging around the non-threatening woods can be good, 10-15 circles :))) Very good is the fact that.

ski resort with a lot of color.

We have been to Zakopane three times, always at about the same time – the beginning of February. And every year there is less and less snow, so we came to the conclusion that as a ski resort, to visit Zakopane.

will be back again

I want to leave a general feedback about skiing and Zakopane. Didn’t find anything like that, or maybe I wasn’t looking hard enough. We are advanced skiers and were going for steep slopes and jumps. But there was no snow for 2016.

Pretty budget winter vacation.

Zakopane – a small town in southern Poland – is a great place for a family winter vacation. Here you can: – ski on one of the mountain slopes. There are tracks of different levels of complexity. Rent skis, snowboards and the necessary.

This is a real fairy tale.

At Christmas we always go abroad with my parents. And for a couple of years we go to Poland, namely Zakopane. It is a ski resort, but for all the time I have been there I did not ski.

I liked the city.

I and my friends went to Zakopane to ski, and only on the 2nd day we realized there was nothing to do with skis here. The tracks on the maps do not correspond to reality. On day 1 went to Harenda, thought there.

Nice surf!!!

I was there for New Year’s 2014, this winter was snowless for everyone and most of the mountains had no runs, or a smaller portion worked. Drove up to Kasprowa’s top once and was disappointed. One climb.

Temperament and beauty of the south of Italy

Great views, fresh air and delicious food – all this you will find in Zakopane!

Good day to all readers of my review! We almost came to Zakopane by chance, we decided to walk there for a couple of days from Krakow. We took the bus, good thing the buses leave often and go about 2-3 hours. Upon arrival.

Awesome, unforgettable.

I will begin with the fact that my wife and I are leaving our country for the New Year, celebrating at home is banal and ordinary. This time we decided to go to Zakopane for skiing (I am skiing very well, my wife is just learning).
