Your private guide will pick you up from your Krakow hotel in the morning. Enjoy the pastoral scenery from the windows as you journey to Zakopane, nestled in the Tatra Mountains. Your guide will provide historical background on the city along the way, including facts about its ‘Zakopane Style’ architecture, a unique blend of art nouveau, folk art and Tyrolean chalet. You’ll get a glimpse of this particular style once you arrive in the stunning mountain setting of the resort.
Head first to the village of Chochołów to see a sculptor’s workshop. Get a chance to chat with the artist and learn how he creates his wooden folk carvings.
Afterward, take a ride up the impressive Mt Gubałówka on the funicular, snapping photos of panoramic views. Then travel back into the city to see the artisanal memorials at the Pęksowy Brzyzek cemetery before pausing to purchase lunch.
Refueled, check out the highland art and costumes at the Tatra Museum and sharpen your knowledge on the area’s architectural history at the Museum of Zakopane Style.
Stop to admire an up-close example of Zakopane Style at the Jaszczurówka Chapel, and then top off your trip with a chairlift ride up alongside the famed Wielka Krokiew ski jump.
After a full day of exploration, your tour will conclude with drop-off back in Krakow.
