Winter in Zakopane
Zakopane as a winter capital of the Tatras is a very popular destination for spending the winter holidays. A wide range of attractions for both adults and children attracts a lot of tourists from year to year. Beautiful views of the Tatras, many ski lifts for beginners and advanced skiers and evenings accompanied by highlander live music are just some of the factors of Zakopane’s popularity during the holidays.
Every year, the Ski Jumping World Cup takes place in Zakopane. The first competition started in 1980 in which the Pole Stanisław Bobak won, and the day later – Piotr Fijas. This year, a team competition and an individual competition will be held.
For active people we recommend winter sports like skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiles. From year to year, skituring is becoming more and more popular; getting to the tops in special skis called seals. This sport refers to the roots of skiing when skiing was used to move around the mountains. It is possible to distinguish three main trends in this sport: sprinters – professional sport, freeriders – downhill runs on pristine slopes and tourists – walking , active tourism. If you are interested on skiing history, you can find more information about this sport here.
