BIAŁKA TATRZAŃSKA (situated 20km from Zakopane) was founded in the first half of the 17th century. In 2000, on the initiative of the residents of BT, a company was established that began investments transforming the little-known village into a popular ski and recreation center. Currently, the village boasts a wonderful KOTELNICA ski complex and a modern water park with thermal pools, TERMA BANIA, and has a huge accommodation and catering base. Below I present practical information for tourists planning a stay in Bialka Tatrzanska:

Bialka Tatrzanska - useful information for tourists

How to get to Bialka Tatrzanska? The most convenient way to get to Bialka Tatrzanska is by bus from Krakow (Flixbus Krakow - Bialka Tatrzanska or Szwagropol Krakow - Bukowina Tatrzańska). You can also order direct transport from the airport (check here ) or rent a car at the airport (check here ). I recommend renting a car outside the winter season, because in winter in Bialka Tatrzańska there is often terrible traffic and parking problems.
Getting around Bialka Tatrzanska - most of the attractions are located in the centre of the village within easy access by foot. In the winter season, usually from January 1 to mid-March, there is a free ski bus in Białka offering over 20 stops between the three main ski slopes - Bialka Grapa, Kotelnica and Kaniowka. Białka Tatrzańska also has very good bus and minibus connections with Zakopane and Nowy Targ.

hiking and cycling

Within 20 km from Białka Tatrzańska there are three National Parks - Tatra, Gorczański and Pieniny, offering many opportunities for wonderful hiking trips. There are also a lot of mountain bike (and horse riding) trails in the Gorczański Park, and the Pieniny Park can be visited by raft, pontoon or kayak.
In Białka Tatrzańska, on the top of Kotelnica Hill (one can get there, with bike, by chairlift number I, open all summer long), two mountain bike trails begin - one leads through Bukowina to Slovakia, the other towards the Gorce Mountains. On the route next to the chairlift there is an attraction for the bravest cyclists - a downhill route. >
