Lake Morskie Oko, Tatra National Park

(4.3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Gaze into Lake Morskie Oko and admire the reflection of snow-capped mountains on the surface of one of the deepest lakes in the Tatra mountains. One of the surrounding peaks is Rysy, the tallest of the Tatras. To fully appreciate its beauty, you'll have to hike up using a wide tarmac trail for 10 km (6.2 mi), or hitch a ride on a horse cart. You can travel to the base of the hiking trail by van from Zakopane's main road. A chalet at the top sells snacks, water, and other beverages for you to eat inside the chalet or outside; both options offer a view of the lake. Plan to see Lake Morskie Oko and other attractions that appeal to you using our Tatra National Park vacation builder.

  • Visit the eye I can recommend it to anyone who likes nature, beautiful views and scenery. Rje ozhodně a visit out of season when not so many tourists. If you're on foot, so it's not so much a bother, but if you choose to exit with the konským team, muíte count with a two-hour queue. I was forced to due to health indosposici choose Exit furmankou. But otherwise not a problem even with the smaller children, go on foot.

  • This is a time that allows to think of nothing else to the Lake on which we will lead. Certainly it takes 9 km to reach the Lake but it was worth (possibility to mount and down sleigh but it is relatively expensive!). 2 hours and 20 minutes walk to reach the Lake and we were not disappointed. The Lake was frozen and we were able to walk on it. Feels tiny in this Valley! Great time

  • I recommend to all, regardless of age. In principle, even if someone has trouble walking (because a trip up to 2.5 h) you can drive up and:)
