This optional tour of Zakopane a winter skiing resort was a lot of fun.  Riding in a horse drawn cart in the rain had us laughing the whole time.  We also had a short visit with a local carving craftsman, a true artist.

DAY 10
Krakow • Optional Zakopane tour




Enjoy a full day to discover the treasures of Krakow on your own. Or, join us for an optional full-day tour to Zakopane, a lovely town in the foothills of the Tatra Mountains. Zakopane offers a look into the richness of Polish folk culture, as well as some of the region's most striking wooden architecture. Once there, you’ll enjoy a tour of the town known as the “winter capital of Poland,” including a horse-drawn carriage ride through the village streets, as well as the forests of nearby Tatra National Park. You might also be tempted to try some local delicacies, like 
oscypek—a rustic, smoked cheese usually made of sheep’s milk—over dinner, which is included with the cost of the optional tour and is accompanied by colorful folk entertainment.
