Merged: What is there to do in Zakopane in the Summer?

I am traveling there with about 5 other eighteen year olds during the summer and am wondering what we can expect to do.

What is the night life like and such and is it hard to arrange day trips to places such as Auschwitz and the salt mines?

Hello DavidODwyer. And welcome to the Polish forums. Zakopane is 100KM south of Krakow, Auschwitz and the salt mines are not much further, so you can get buses there easily arranged through a tour operator. Good luck!

The thread that SeanBM, provided is a good over view of Zakopane. Having travelled to Zakopane and Krakow many times. I would suggest, you do the trips to Auschwitz and the salt mines at the end of your stay. Going to Auschwitz is a heavy trip and is not for the faint hearted. If you had an over night stay in Krakow at the end of your journey, you could do Ausch-Birk, Salt mines, Wawel, Schindlers factory, Krakow stare miasto and Kazmierz over two full days. There are a lot of inexpensive hostels in Krakow, that you can book by the night.

There is plenty to occupy you in Zakopane and the surrounding areas for the rest of the stay.

I preferred to stay in Zakopane and just take a day trips to Krakow, Wieliczka salt main and any other places. The bus to Krakow is very cheep and there are plenty ways to see Krakow. Great place to spend day and things you must to see. How many days you plan to stay in Zakopane. We go there every year /have family in Zakopane/and always find some new places to go as Zakopane offers more and more. What we missing is golf course, but we just crazy golfers, can not live long without it. Hiking, walking, biking, museums, spas, shops, river rafting /you can go there on tour bus/. There is something to do every day for everybody. There are many website you can get idea what to do and what to see.

Where you going to stay? I'm trying to promote our place, since you can not find more helpful, friendly, and competent vacation owner family in great location in Zakopane. Willa Pod Smrekami and phone number +48603190860

Merged: Summer holidays in Zakopane


We are living in Warsaw, and planning to take 1 week in August for family vacations. Our children are 10, 8 & 2.5 years old.
I wonder if Zakopane & surroundings would be a good choice in our case?
Besides extremely beautiful nature seen on various pictures, what else this area has to offer for families with kids during summer-period?

If you have any additional ideas for active holidays (child-oriented) in other areas of Poland - will gladly accept your recommendations :-)

Thanks a lot!

You can of course do hiking in the mountains. Especially more-days tours where you can sleep in the alpine cabines in the area. It is also worth just passing the border to Slovakia. Zakopane is like a french ski village in the Alps. It is basically one street with a lot of shops.
