Hiking=Rainy Days

A travel blog entry by meganfisher

A travel blog entry by goontack


Zakopane and the Tatra Mountains; A hidden little gem in the most southern part of Poland. A name most people might not have known or heard of.

    This building is just amazing. The rooms were big and there were lots of common areas. The internet connection was good. The breakfast was excellent and the kitchen was well stocked. I would highly recommend this place to anyone
