I spent most of my life skiing - my father and grandfather were excellent skiers, they represented Poland at the Olympics (Marian Woyna Orlewicz in 1936 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Jerzy Woyna-Orlewicz in 1964 in Innsbruck). Since I was a child, I competed in ski competitions, I was in the Polish national team for several years and until now I work as a ski instructor. On the pages about skiing in Zakopane and the surrounding area, you will find my advice and comments :)
