  • A nice and compact museum showing history of Tatra Mts. and Podhale region, its development as a resort and popular destination. Also describes comprehensively geography, geology and natural environment of Tatra Mts as well as folklore of Polish Highlanders. Great to see when raining and no way to mountaineer.
  • good place for this price
  • Interesting exhibitions but some of them lack broader context and English descriptions. Overall worth seeing.
  • Wow
  • Impression of the haunted ruins the State co-ed restroom. One, say one for the visitors. The lack of descriptions of exhibits at least in English. Poor interior lighting, display cases that a collection of minerals on the floor rather Museum. Saves the Museum of flora and fauna. But it's too little to create the style object is open to tourist.

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.
