Zakopane - prachtig gelegen stadje aan de voet van het Tatragebergte, de hoogste bergketen van Polen. Zakopane draagt de trotse naam van 'skihoofdstad van Polen'. Het is het populairste vakantieoord van Polen.
For full disclosure I have visited many mountain ranges. Having said that I would rate the Tatra mountains only fair. Even more disappointing was Zakopane itself. What a tourist trap with over priced restaurants and countless souvenir shops. In addition we spent more time getting to and returning than we spent in the town and mountains. Please don't waste your time and money.
Our guide and driver, Tomas, was extremely helpful and courteous and had s great sense of humor. the group of six (made up of 3 parties of two who had previously never met) had s great laugh with him. We all noted what an excellent driver he was and how thoughtful he was of other drivers.
