Zakopane to Poprad

by saundersje

Is it possible to walk from Zakopane to Poprad in Slovakia in a day. No difficult climbing please.

Re: Zakopane to Poprad

by evaanna

I don't think so. It's around 70 km by road. The bus journey takes over 2 hours. There would be no difficult climbing involved - in fact a large part of the journey would be roads going down but it's simply too far.

My husband says that you could take the cable car to the top of Kasprowy Wierch and then walk down along Ticha Dolina, which is easy enough and on to Strbske Pleso. There you can take the electric train to Poprad. Otherwise, using just the roads it is more like 100 km than the 70 I thought it to be.

My Photos Around Zakopane...

by coceng

Zakopane sits at an altitude of 800 to 1000 meter.
Sitting at the foot of Mt. Giewont, which is part of the High Tatras Mountain Range.
This photo of me standing (without my lower half) was taken by Marek, who went to Zakopane with me.
Look at the back of the photo ! That's The High Tatras !

Learning to Ski

by spjm

If you want to learn to ski try a place called Polana Szymoszkowa which is just outside of the main town. You can catch a "bus" there from the centre of Zakopane, or to be honest by the time one turns up you could have walked it and warmed up your leg muscles (about 30 mins maximum). I had a one hour very professional lesson with an instructor costing 60 Pln. The nursery slope is ideal for learning on and you can then progress to the bigger slope nextdoor when you pluck up the courage! Skis, poles and boots can all be hired there under the main restaurant (27 Pln for 4 hours). The guys that ran the place seemed not to realise I was gone much longer and the price always seemed to remain the same...handy. For 3 Pln you can leave your rucksack in their safe hands.

Moving on from Zakopane

by barryg23

There are regular connections from Zakopane to other towns in the region and to further afield. After Zakopane, our next destination was Tatranska Lomnica in the Slovakian High Tatras. We left all our planning until the last minute when we arrived at the bus station. Our first idea was to get a bus to Lysa Polana, the border crossing, and then catch a bus on the Slovakian side.

However, the nice girl at the tourist information in the bus station in Zakopane advised us to wait an hour and catch the bus to Poprad which stopped at Tatranska Lomnica. There are only two of these buses a day (at 7.10 and 13:05) so we were lucky we had timed it right. I was glad we skipped Lysa Polana as it didn't look like the nicest place, especially in the heavy rain, and we would probably have had to wait a while for an onward connection.

KASPROWY WIERCH

by wandeljp

KASPROWY WIERCH

To get to the summit is nothing more easy: go street (ul) Krupówki 48 (it is at the end of town) and the path you seem too long, you can always use one of the many carriages .
There you will find the start of the lift. A ticket (round trip) would cost 42 zloty and 12 minutes you're in the middle of a gorgeous panorama!

---oooOOOooo---

Pour vous rendre sur ce sommet rien n'est plus simple: rendez-vous rue (ul) Krupówki 48 (c'est tout au bout de la ville) et si le chemin vous parait trop long, vous pourrez toujours utiliser une des nombreuses calèches.
Vous trouverez là le départ de la télécabine. Un ticket (aller-retour) vous couteras 42 Zloty et en 12 minutes vous serez au beau milieu d'un panorama superbe !

Parish Church

by acemj

When St. Clement's Church could no longer support Zakopane's growing population toward the end of the 19th century, the new Parish Church was built nearby on Krupowki. I like its high position above the street and inside you'll find the impressive St. John the Baptist Chapel, which was designed by the famous originator of the Zakopane style of architecture, Stanislaw Witkiewicz.
