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.
Explore Zakopane's surroundings by going to Szczawnica (Pieniński Park Narodowy & Homole Canyon). There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Gubalowka, explore the different monuments and memorials at Cmentarz Zasluzonych na Peksowym Brzyzku, admire the landmark architecture of Upside Down House (Dom Do Gory Nogami), and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Church of Our Lady of Czestochowa.

Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Krakow in August since evenings lows in Zakopane dip to 11°C.
