Zakopane, located at the foot of the Tatra Mountain Range in the S, is the main base for skiing & hiking activities in Poland.
In the past Zakopane's impressive mountain scenery attracted writers and artists. Now however Zakopane is a full-blown tourist resort with all the services and facilities, people and traffic congestion that goes hand in hand with mass tourism. Those seeking a quiet mountain retreat should avoid the center and the main hiking routes or head for a different destination.

This is a popular entry/exit route between Poland and Slovakia. It is possible to travel by bus between Poprad and/or the High Tatras (Slovakia) and Krakow (Poland) within a day, so you don't have to break journey in Zakopane, though you will have to change transport here and probably at the border.
!Warning: overrun during local holiday periods.
