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.

  • The excursion is worth much and the Lake is impressive. That Yes, please that removed the option to go horseback riding. Walk less than three hours and I believe that the use of these is unnecessary. Transported to too many people at once and it is very difficult to climb, I saw them in the month of March and the poor came sweating and barely, I don't want to imagine in summer.

  • We have taken the coach uphill. It costs 50 zlote per person. Despite we have done it we found it for the horses that were killed had it heavily. The top one has a thick half an hour's walk to the Lake. Once there, you will be treated to spectacular views. At the Lake is a restaurant where you have beautiful view over the mountains. You can eat and drink anything here for a good price. We have a good solid Polish meal eaten. We walked downhill. the walk is about 9 km and you will run thick 2hours but it seems shorter because of the scenic views

  • Been here on new year's Eve, came to Zakopane on a minibus and. .. We do not read before, that to the eye of another 9 km. Note that in the mountains early darkens, better come very early in the morning. If you do not feel sorry for 50 zł, a large portion of this path you can travel with the horses and sleigh rides in winter. But we have seen how the horse of one of the teams going back ever and just at high speed into a crowd of people were. All ended well, people, their was no sleigh, Kucera stretched on Earth, the horses calmed. We walked for 2.5 hours to write this climb. Ideally, buy shoe spikes, me in slippery boots was go very difficult places (and in some places had to cling to everything)). The Lake was frozen and covered with snow, immediately and you will not understand that this Lake, summer or when unfrozen water here must be very beautiful. But to go on the ice but you can) already went Back in the darkness, it was not terrible, people went very much.
