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.

  • It seems to me an essential activity for people who like nature and hiking and is visiting Krakow. In the town of Zakopane (2-3 h of Krakow bus) you can take a bus you climbing up to the entrance to the natural park of the tatra mountains for a price of 10PLN per person. The entrance to the Park costs 5PLN also per person and gives you the possibility to a nice 2 hour hike and a half until the Lake while you delight with the beautiful view offered by the landscape. Although it is uploading at all times, walk along paved ground and nothing hard is done (except in winter by snow and ice), in addition the reward that is received at the end when you see the panoramic view offered by the Lake, well worth all the "suffering". RECOMMEND:-early to avoid in the rise the massification of people that performs this activity. -Carry water and food for the road, sunscreen (even in winter, snow is treacherous) and go dress in comfortable clothes and trekking.

  • ביקרתי במורסקי אוקו פעמיים. בכל פעם נהניתי מחדש ונשאר לי טעם של עוד. ראשית, יש הליכה וטיפוס עד שמגיעים למקום.. למי שמתקשה ניתן להגיע באמצעות עגלות רתומות לסוסים, ועדין יש ללכת לא מעט. כשמגיעים לאגם, נ...  more »
