I am planning a trip to the polish mountains. Does anybody know which " schronisko" is the best to stay?

South of Krakow there are the Beskid mountains, before the high Tatras.
Lots of forest and many routes to take, if you would like to go trekking or cycling.

There are so many shelter houses in Polish mountains it'd be hard for somebody to take one over another one. I'm pretty sure it's all about personal preferences, different people can tell you different things just because they've spent more time in that one favourite place. The best way is to hike from one "schronisko" to another one with a backpack, most "schronisko" hosts I've met were nice and always gave me proper directions for example if I'll make it to another "schronisko" before the night. Have fun!

Oh and if you want to go more off the beaten track avoid Zakopane and its surroundings - lots of tourists, although probably much fewer than in the summer period.

"Morskie oko" i do not recommend: lots of tourists, expensive and loudly. ble

But basically where do you go? to tatra mountains, beskidy, bieszczady, karkonosze...etc? :)

There are many quite good "shelters" in mountains. In Lupków "in the end of the wolrd ;)" nice and cheap.

It depends on what do you prefer, because for ex Lupkow has no electricity, water etc (well, there's a well :) )
"pod rawkami", PTTK in Wetlina, "Chatka Puchatka"- everything is in Bieszczady
"magura malastowska".

In tatra there good places, but they are expensive and looks like hotel, so it depends on what do prefer.
