Only had one day to spend here, it wasn't enough. Great views, good paths. We all want to return for a proper hiking holiday in these beautiful surroundings.

Theoretically, it's an easy mountain trip but be careful. First of all: if the weather is bad, entering Giewont can be very dangerous. Secondly, there are so many tourists in July and August that you should consider another trip. It's crowded there. If the weather...More
