PORONIN and MURZASICHLE are two highland villages bordering Zakopane. Poronin is located on the road from Ktraków to Zakopane, and Murzasichle on the road from Zakopane to Slovakia and Morskie Oko. Both villages are often treated as a base for trips to nearby Zakopane, Tatra trails and ski slopes and thermal pools in nearby towns. Accommodation in guest houses in Poronin check here and Murzasichle check here is much cheaper than in Zakopane. Below I present practical information for tourists planning holidays in Poronin or Murzasichle:

Poronin and Murzasichle - useful information for tourists

Access to Poronin is very convenient because all buses (except Flixbus) coming from other cities in Poland via Kraków and Nowy Targ stop at the bus stop in Poronin. All trains also stop at the Poronin railway station. To get from Poronin to Murzasichle you can take a local minibus or taxi. You can also order direct transport from the airport (check here ) or rent a car at the airport (check here ).
Getting around Poronin and Murzasichle - there are plenty of buses and minibuses go from Zakopane to Morskie Oko via Poronin or Murzasichle but in high season they are often are overcrowded and do not stop at bus stops in these villages.
The site is being updated. I will do my best to make it ready by the end of December. Thank you for your patience. Barbara.

Poronin - useful information for tourists

In the years 1912-1914, Vladimir Lenin, a Russian communist, organizer and leader of the October Revolution, often stayed in Poronin. After the war, the inn where Lenin often frequented was converted into his museum, and a large statue of Lenin was erected in front of the building. In 1970, activists of an underground anti-communist organization planned to set fire to the museum and blow up the Lenin monument as part of the Poronin action. The attack failed due to a denunciation from a secret collaborator of the communist Security Service. After the fall of communism in Poland (1990), the monument was demolished and the Museum is now replaced by the Cultural Center.
