You are not in the mountains. The mountains are in you.

Poland Wonderland

The first thought that crosses my mind when I am thinking about Poland, is this big country, which you always drive through when going to Germany or Italy. But it’s so much more. Cities like Warsaw, Krakow, and Poznan actually are surprisingly nice! With super good roads for bicycles or scooters, cool architecture, and a lot of things to do and see.

But this time I would like to tell more about the mountain part – Zakopane.

Usually, when we think about the Tatra mountains our thoughts go to the Slovakia side. But actually, this mountain area already starts in Poland. With plenty of hiking trails, beautiful nature, and lakes.

Every time I go to the mountains, breathe the air there and see the majestic landscape, I just feel grateful and that’s all. There you can really understand that we don’t need much.

Which trail to choose?

For hiking, I can suggest one good webpage – AllTrails. But here are also hikes this summer we walked, some of them were also with my parents, so they are doable for everyone!

  • Siklawica Waterfall and Sarnia Skala peak;
  • Morskie Oko and Rysami;
  • Krzesanica and three peaks;
  • Kasprowy Wierch and Five Polish Ponds Valley.

By the way, in Kasprowy Wierch you can use a cable car which saves energy if you want to walk on top more and go down the hard way.

Zakopane is definitely a great destination where to rest and enjoy nature, and of course, amazing food!
