Poland 4: Mountains of Zakopane!
by Steve Ray on August 25, 2019
So we begin our 4th day here in Poland. What a glorious morning up in the mountains of Zakopane in our chalet-like 5-star hotel. I’m going to have a hard time getting everyone to leave here in two days 🙂
We started the day by visiting one of the old wooden churches built out of timber 100 years ago. So quaint and beautiful. Then we took the tram up Gubałówka Mountain for a view of Zakopane from the sky. Everybody got coffee and drinks and we enjoyed the time. Then shopping and gawking along Kripowski Street.
After our free time, we had a “Highlander’s Lunch” at Zohylina Yzno Restaurant. Mass at Our Lady of Fatima in the woods (homily here) then more free time to walk around Kripowski Street with the open-air markets, shops and restaurants. Rest of the day free.
