What I saw in Zakopane

posted in: Blog | 0

Zakopane is at the foot of the Tatras mountains in southern Poland. It’s the Gateway to the Tatras, and a scenic pit stop for skiers and hikers. The pretty-as-a-picture sleepy little town has traditional wooden houses, bustling markets and lively restaurants.

 

 

I stayed at the spiffy Hotel Aries, at the edge of town.

 

 

Oscypek, a smoked cheese, is a local specialty.

 

It’s made of salted sheep milk, and the cheese-maker is called ‘baca’.

 

 

Nothing like some lively Highlander music to unwind after a day on the slopes.

 

 

 

Shake a leg. Then get down to a hearty meal and *polish* it off with some mouth-watering dessert.

 

 

Or candied fruit, perhaps?
