Tatra Mountains from Zakopane, Poland

Weather: ~18-22 °C at the bottom, ~10 °C on tops

Timing: end of August – beginning of September

4 days, 2 big hikes

To get there it’s 10-15 minutes by car from Zakopane center, parking spaces are available for a fee before approaching the foot of the mountains.

There are hikes and cable car for a fee available to get to the top. If you decide to choose the latter – cable car station is located in Kuznice (upper part of Zakopane).

For a fun fact – the cable car to Kasprowy Wierch is one of the oldest still working cable cars in Europe.

Up on top there are café, toilets, souvenir shops, clothing shops and plenty of plateau space to enjoy the view – you don’t even have to take any hike – view is right there.

Getting up there for the view is a great choice, although take a hiking trail is extremely recommended!

Morskie Oko (Eye of the Sea), is the largest and fourth-deepest lake in the Tatra Mountains and the most beautiful lake in Poland. It is located deep within the Tatra National Park and there are plenty of awesome hikes to get there.

Our choice was through the Valley of Five Lakes.

Took ~7 hours, ~24 km in total of mountainous roads, rocky paths and stunning views!
