Use to be a small town surrounded by Mountains. Za-kopane means buried mainly by snow but also was tough to get there. Unfortunately, it’s beauty was quickly discovered and today at full seasons Zakopane gets very crowded. Crowds are on main Krupowki Street and on thousand kilometers of trails.

Trips with a map in the backpack

Route 1

Nearby, the entrance to the Olczyska valley / 400 meters towards Morskie Oko / – to the creek’s spring about 1 hour. Then you have to decide
whether to Kopieniec i Cyrhla / about 1.40h / where there is a local cuisine in Siedmiu Cats / you can return along the trail near the Church, going to Dolna Chłabówka /
or to Nosalowa Przelecz, and then to Kuźnice / about 1h/, where it is worth having a meal in the Yurt, the meeting place of mountain hikers.

Route 2

to Kuźnice / about 45 min /, and from there we move towards the shelter in Kalatówki / 40 min / passing the monastery of St. Albertine Church with brother Albert’s hermitage to visit. For those willing, I suggest a 40-minute walk to the shelter on Kondratowa with a view of Giewont and a tasty meal with gingerbread or home-made apple pie.

Route 3

On Sunday I propose a trip to Rusinowa Polana with admiring the beautiful panorama of the Tatra Mountains from there. It is worth visiting the church in Wiktorówki / masses 9, 11, 13 / led by the Dominicans, and built-in memory of the apparitions. It is worth listening to exceptional sermons, drinking free tea in the room by the kitchen, viewing the memorial plaques, and drawing water from the spring. It is best to go from Zazadnia /1.2h/ and return to Wierch Poroniec /1.2h/

Route 4

From the house along the Pod Reglami path, passing the ski jumps, we enter the picturesque Biała Valley 1.15h, we go to the Sarnia Skała viewpoint / 25min /, and then to the hut in the Strążyska Valley /35min/. There we can eat, and when we regain strength, it is worth it approach Siklawica / 10 min /. Return to bottom Strążyska will take / 50min /. Returning to the city, there will be Willa Koliba nearby, the Old Church with a cemetery in Pęksowy Brzyzek, from where it is only a step to Krupówki.
