We’ve been dreaming of exploring Zakopane since we lived in Warsaw and spent our Erasmus days in Poland. When we finally did, we were astonished by this amazing town in the South of Poland. We’ve gathered 28 photos that we’re sure will ignite your wanderlust and make you add Zakopane to your dream destinations as well. Yes, we believe you need to visit Zakopane!
We still have one month left of Winter in the Northern hemisphere. So it’s the perfect time to share these photos. Winter is the underdog of seasons for traveling, but we can’t understand why. There are so many perks to traveling during this time of the year, and one of them is definitely the snow. It makes everything more magical. And if there are mountains involved? That’s the ultimate definition of paradise!
Without further ado, here are the photos, and 10 reasons why Zakopane is the ultimate Winter Wonderland!
To start, you can get a central and unique double room with these views for less than 50€ a night (during the high season!)
The mall looks like this
And the market has everything you need, as well as a whole lot of beautiful things you don’t need, but will want to buy anyway
The streets are filled with cheese stalls (yes, they exist!), beautiful beer alleys (they do too!), sweet street food and cozy cafes
If it’s not too cold, you can enjoy all of this tasty food in gorgeous terraces with crazy views
You can also find unique wooden churches in the middle of the mountains
And museums that look like this
Yes, the architecture is wonderful
But the mountains make Zakopane the ultimate Winter Wonderland
By the end of your trip, you’ll seriously consider moving into a cabin in the middle of the mountains
Zakopane is an amazing town in the South of Poland that is worth visiting any time of the year. We are hoping to go in the Summer to do all the hikes that the snow stopped us from doing. We can’t wait to explore the Morskie Oko and actually see the peaks of the Kasprowy Wierch.
