Krupowki Street (Ulica Krupówki) passes through the heart of Zakopane and ranks among the most famous streets in all of Poland. Stretching for a little over half a mile (1 kilometer), the walking street is lined with restaurants, hotels, bars and boutique shops selling sportswear and luxury fashions. No matter the season, Krupówki Street always bustles with activity; street performers entertain passing tourists while portrait artists draw caricatures. Horse-drawn carriages ferry passengers up and down the promenade.
Each summer, the street hosts the International Festival of Highland Folklore, one of Poland’s oldest and largest folk festivals.
Try to visit Krupówki Street during the day and in the evening, as the vibe will be completely different.
