Explore the winter capital of Poland

Zakopane is the highest situated town in Poland with around 27,200 citizens. Its beautiful and breathtaking views attract tourists from all over the world. Not without reason, it is called the winter capital of Poland. Just see those cosy wooden huts, taste the local cheese and stroll along the popular Krupówki Street. You will admit it yourself.

Zakopane owes this characteristic atmosphere to the partial location of the Tatra Mountains within its administrative borders. It became a popular resort town with main attractions in the central point of Zakopane. The intersection of Krupowki Street and Kosciuszki Street.

In the north, there is the Gubałówka Mountain Range and in the south, a mountain massif dominating the landscape Giewont. Being around the mountains, the traditional folk costumes and music will put you in a different mood and give you an unforgettable experience. Another great adventure is watching the national ski jumping. It is great entertainment, giving you incredible emotions. Already delighted with Zakopane? Find a way to discover it with Mr.Shuttle!

The magnificent Tatra Mountains

The Tatra Mountains is a natural border between Poland and Slovakia. In the Carpathian Mountains, the Tatra Mountains are the highest mountain range. The summit on the Polish side is Rysy and it reaches 2499 m. The mountains combine both nature and beauty which makes it an attraction that cannot be missed.

    My two sisters and I took the Zakopane tour on 3rd December. What a fantastic day! We were picked up at 08.30 on the dot by our tour guide Martin. The vehicle was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Martin was most informative throughout our day - providing information and answering our questions. My two elder sisters are both in the 70s. My middle sister is currently recovering from a broken leg and Martin was always on hand to help her in/out of the vehicle and to help her cross icy pathways. We enjoyed our packed lunch (provided), sitting at the top of the Gubałówka Mountain Range, enjoying the cold yet beautiful sunshine. We would certainly recommend Mr Shuttle - and would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Martin.

    Stayed end of November 21 in Krakow and booked all our trips with Mr.Shuttle - The trip to Zakopane was great, our driver was very informative and nothing was a problem. Would definitely recommend Zakopane - the ride on the chairlift was cold but the views were amazing ! The funicular train was an experience and again the views from the mountain were breathtaking - Booked another short break for December 2022 and looking to visit Zakopane again.

    We had been travelling through a number of cities and we were looking for something a little different. The Tatra mountains are stunning and Zakopane is a mountain tourist village nestled in the valley. We went by cable car to Gubalowka for a spectacular view over the valley. You could imagine what it would look like buried in a metre of snow. We ate a roll for lunch provided by KS overlooking the valley and then had a coffee and icecream from one of the many cafes. It was a sunny day and there were lots of people just sitting and enjoying the view. Our driver Jacob stopped at a number of places for photos on the way and the day also included a ticket to the top of the ski jump in Zakopane. There are little tourist pop ups behind the Cafes and at the bottom of the mountain there is a market as well. We were up the top for 1.5 hours but you could come down earlier and shop a bit. We fell asleep on the way back as it is along drive but the views were spectacular and we have some amazing photos and memories. We were well looked after by Jacob who got us there and back safely
