Zakopane is a resort town in southern Poland, at the base of the Tatras Mountains. It’s a popular departure point for winter sports and summertime mountain climbing and hiking. Kasprowy Wierch and Gubałówka, reachable by cable car and funicular, are nearby ski destinations offering sweeping mountain views. The town is also known for its turn-of-the-20th-century wooden chalets, symbols of Zakopane-style architecture.

On Krupówki Street, the town’s vibrant main thoroughfare, Zakopane-style chalets now house restaurants and shops selling traditional foods, such as oszczypek smoked cheese, and crafts inspired by the indigenous Goral people. Zakopane-style structures are now branches of the Tatra Museum, filled with original 19th- and early-20th-century furnishings. Villa Atma is a museum within Polish composer Karol Szymanowski’s former home. Outside town, Tatra National Park is known for its caves, mountain trekking, and trout fishing at Morskie Oko lake, while hiking trails lead to the top of Svinica, a mountain peak bordering Slovakia.
