Mt Gubalówka Tours

Mt Gubalowka is a mountain above the town of Zakopane in southern Poland. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the region, offering amazing views of the Tatras Mountains and a variety of outdoor activities throughout the year. The best way to reach the top is by the funicular that will take you up from Zakopane in just three and a half minutes. First opened in 1938, it was rebuilt in 2001 and now carries up to 2,000 passengers per hour.

Mt Gubalowka has a popular ski resort with about three kilometers of ski runs open from early December to early April. In addition to the funicular, skiers can take a two-person chair lift, T-Bar or rope tow up the mountain. When the ski season ends, a summer toboggan run opens, as do biking and walking trails. There is also a restaurant serving traditional meals, cold beer and hot tea year-round on an outdoor terrace. A few monuments of note at the top are the bronze Polonia Restituta statue, presented at the 1937 World’s Exhibition in Paris, an iron cross founded by legendary Zakopane resident Tytus Chalubinski and a small wooden chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Rosary.

Practical Info

The funicular departs Zakopane just north of Ulitsa Krupowki and costs about $6 for a round-trip ticket. The ski resort operates daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the majority of runs are graded easy to intermediate.
