We were collected from our Hotel in Krakow at 9am, by our driver for the day and tour guide. We made our way by Mercedes in comfort, and our guide was informative throughout. We made a stop in Chocholow to see the traditional Highlander wooden houses, and another to sample some smoked sheep cheese, before reaching Zakopane. After visiting a wooden villa, church and cemetary, we took the funicular railway to have lunch and enjoy the breathtaking views of the still snow capped Tatras mountains including the 'Sleeping Giant'. With the temperature at 30 deg in Zakopane, the cool breeze was most refreshing. After our descent, we had time to visit the ski slopes, and also a beautiful wooden church, set in the forest. On the return to Krakow, our guide also showed us a village where Lenin would take his holidays many years before. I worthwhile trip, and a wonderful day out.
