Overall Guide : The town located at the footsteps of Mount Giewont, a very famous holiday destination known as Zakopane in Poland. Covered with various mountains around this place has many things to do. The most popular thing to do here is trekking... more and mountain hiking. I started my journey by joining a couple of other hikers. We geared up by doing couple of exercises instructed by the group leader so that we don’t get any kind of muscle or joint sprain. The journey over the mountain was very exciting, though it was tiring however once when we reached the top of the mountain the view was so relaxing that we almost forgot about the entire tiring trek. I saw that being a tourist place the city was flooded with restaurants and places to visit. I saw a lot of people shopping. The town had huge shopping malls. I found it be a perfect place in summer as well as in winter for an exciting vacation.
Not to be missed Tytus Chalubinskiego Tatra Museum , Tatran Trails , Koscieliska
