Winter Wonderland

The guide was exceptionally informative and gentle and took us to all the attractions that were in Zakopane although it had nothing to do with the guide unfortunately the weather was not good enough to see clearly the mountains as to very low visibility. One should consider going in summer if this is a main attraction. For us it was enough seeing carpets of snow everywhere coming from a mediterranean island.
