Zakopane was amazing! We were picked up on time and the journey there was fairly smooth with little traffic. We had a private car and guide for the entire trip which was great. Jakub was very friendly and gave us plenty of time to explore. The first stop at the sculpture shop was adorable, and the cheese shop afterwards was amazing. We purchased souvenirs and tried 4 different cheeses - the whole experience even before we got to Zakopane was gorgeous. Once we got to the village, Jakub gave us plenty of time to explore and get lunch. There are many options and places to visit, plus the views are breathtaking. We had an amazing time. On the way home, we ran into trouble with traffic and eventually got stuck in the snow trying to go over a hill. Jakub was amazing and managed to drive us home in horrible conditions, and a massive thank you as well as the 4 guys who helped push us up the hill. We would not be making our flight home without him!
This was a last minute find as we'd finished our earlier activity sooner than expected. We booked it online with 15 minutes before it closed for the day and rushed down there, not quite knowing what to expect. I LOVED this visit. You get to see the inner workings of how stained glass pieces are produced, with people working around you as you visit working on new creations. I've spent years marvelling at various stained glass works and so it was an absolute delight to witness how they're made and all the work that goes into them. Visit here before heading to the Museum as you'll get some inner knowledge and appreciation for some of the pieces on display at the museum. P.S I lost count of how many times our guide had to tell certain people not to pick up the glass. These aren't cheap biscuits and are sharp so, please, unless you're told otherwise, don't pick up the glass!
The tour guide spoke virtually no English and could not relate to us anything. I think he was just the driver that was tapped at the last moment to be the "guide" as well. He was so concerned about traffic that he wanted to return to the city early so he didn't have to deal with traffic. The place was beautiful but we didn't have enough time to explore.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience, the tour was excellent and very informative! We especially enjoyed the workshop and have created two pieces of stained glass which we will proudly present in our home. The lady who supported us during the workshop was very helpful and friendly.
We arrived in Zakopane about 1:45 from Krakow. You reach a stunning area in its beauty. It is recommended to go to the cable car and enjoy the view of the Tetra Mountains. If you have time and the driver allows So it is also advisable to do snowmobile trips
