Zakopane is a wonderful mountain resort both in winter and summer. The Tatra National Park is also built in the area, which offers excellent conditions in the summer for outdoor activities - hiking, mountain biking or just a light walk to explore the beautiful mountain peaks and lush meadows.
In these mountainous areas, you are surrounded by many beautiful edelweiss flowres. The local residents call this delicate flower sharotka and consider it a symbol of their city.
In the Zakopane region rises the imposing Giewont Mountain, which is said to resemble a sleeping giant in shape. On this peak you can see a huge cross.
