  • Wonderful place to stay. Such views that take your breath away. The three crowns is a longer view heavenly. Dunajec with brilliant Raftmen is already super at all. The castle in czorsztyn necessarily need to visit.

  • Beautiful view. Nice people around. Good place for start hiking. The lady in small shop with maps and souvenirs was very helpful.
  • Amazing place. Great views. Interesting content. Must see!
  • Krasna priroda - sluzby, ako na slovensku. Bufet na hotdogy, ziadna restauracia. Pozrete na polsku stranu a tam restauracie, ihriska, sedenia ! Nerozumiem preco je Slovac, tak neschopna ! Prirodna rezervacia a po ceste nenajdete jeden smetny kos. Smutne !
  • This is just a beautiful place must see for everyone who loves hiking
  • Very secluded and beautiful place. But you must be ready to spend at least five-eight hours by hiking
