Our tour took us to this small wooden church that should be seen when in the area. We stayed maybe 10 minutes, which was enough to see the inside and outside of the building.

One could miss this mountainside church, when driving on the main highway out of town, because it resembles a mountain chalet. However, this multiple storied wood church with an arcaded porch, built in the early 20th century, is a busy tourist stop because of its...More

This is a cute little wooden chapel ouside of the town of Zakopane. You have to cross a busy street to get to it so be careful. It is free and there is a small art gallery in the bottom. There is a path in...More

This chapel is a must see when visiting Zakopane as it shows off the beautiful carpentry. Most people tend to visit the main town so this little gem is often quiet and less traveled. It is free to visit and worth the short trip from...More
