Lilac tulips begin to appear in the foothills. As more snow melts, carpets of these flowers emerge, and deer slink out of the forest to enjoy the midday sun.
It’s a fine time to explore the countryside, and there are a host of trails to guide you amongst the splendors of the Highlands.
As the season progresses, Zakopane inflates like a brightly colored balloon – the town is not the dreamy retreat that it was a hundred years ago! Zakopane often has the atmosphere of a jolly Highland fairground, with trippers from across Poland coming down to explore the countryside and let off steam in the bars and nightclubs. Expect plenty of company and high spirits all round!
Zakopane is one of the best-known tourist towns in Poland. Zakopane, which was “discovered” as a tourist attraction in the second half of the XIX century, is not coming out of fashion, but on the contrary, every year it attracts more and more tourists, who are so happy with their stay at the foot of the Tatra Mountains that they hope to come back here. Zakopane owes its popularity to various facilities it offers its visitors.
