Trip Planner: Europe / Poland / Southern Poland / Lesser Poland Province / Tatra National Park / Lake Morskie Oko
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. For Lake Morskie Oko and beyond, use our Tatra National Park trip itinerary website to get the most from your Tatra National Park vacation.

Parking costs 30 zł... Still the wallet hurt me:D Entrance to the park is the cost of 5zł. Practically the whole road is simple easy and enjoyable though a little boring; P I encourage everyone to walk with kids too. We went about 7.30 and for 1.45 we were on the spot at the average pace. At that time of day and year there were literally a few people already on the site but admits that after several minutes people began to descend as ants:) So we ran on the Black Pond. A place very pleasant to the eye, especially in a very cheerful day, unfortunately, crowds of people spoil this effect. On the site there is a shelter, where there is a toilet (payable 2zł) You can eat and drink on the spot. I would gladly see this view in winter too must be beautiful, I recommend.
