Zakopane, the winter capital of Poland, is a city located in the south of Poland, around a 2-hour drive from Krakow. This lovely city, immersed in the natural surroundings, is at the foot of the Tatra Mountains - the miniature Alps. Zakopane has an unforgettable atmosphere and beautiful views all year round. People come to Zakopane to experience the highlander folklore, their dialect, art, traditions, traditional costumes and music as well as the picturesque wooden architecture, which beautifully presents itself in the foreground of the towering Mount Giewont.

Krupowki is one of the five most famous streets in Poland. This vibrant promenade is filled with shops, pubs, restaurants, and other institutions.Mount Gubalowka is not a very high peak and can be reached either by funicular or on foot. Your prize for getting to the top is a breathtaking view of the Tatra Mountains. The Muzeum Tatrzanskie im. T. Chalubinskiego (Tatra Museum), in which you can admire a reconstructed highlander cottage with a traditional interior, should be visited. One of the oldest streets in Zakopane is Koscieliska Street, where you can see authentic highlander cottages, some dating back over 150 years. The central point on Koscieliska Street is the Stary kosciol parafialny MB Czestochowskiej i sw. Klemensa (Old Parish Church)Cmentarz na Peksowym Brzyzku (Old Cemetery), Zakopane's first cemetery, and the final resting place for many famous Zakopane residents. Every grave is a unique piece of art made from either wood or stone.

The Villa Koliba and the Villa Pod Jedlami are perfect examples of highlander architecture.
