Winter Capital of Poland
Home to Poland's indigenous Goral people, Zakopane sits at the foothill of the Tatra Mountains, an area serving as one of the country's most fashionable year-round vacation getaways. Linked to Krakow by convenient bus and train lines, the town became a major health resort in the 19th century. Known for its unspoiled natural scenery, and serving as a huge draw for ardent hikers and skiers, Zakopane also features some of Europe's finest wooden mountain villas, many of them masterpieces by architect Stanislaw Witkiewicz. Although it experienced a major construction boom in the second half of the 20th century, Zakopane retains much of its small-town feel, resembling more an expanding village than a major city. Our Poland online tour planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Zakopane

Despite its reputation as one of Poland's most popular winter resorts, Zakopane has no shortage of affordable lodgings. Although most hotels hike their prices during the winter holidays, the town's guesthouses or self-catering apartments provide plenty of economical sleeping options. Many locals rent simply furnished rooms in private houses, providing another low-cost alternative for travelers with a limited budget. If you arrive without a reservation, look for rental signs posted outside private homes, or check with the city's main tourist office.
