Krupówki Street is the heart of Zakopane. Closed to car traffic, paved with granite cubes is a place visited by every tourist staying in Zakopane. On sunny mornings, which tourists spend on the ski slopes or mountain trails, it becomes empty and populated only in the evening. On the rainy days, Krupowki Promenade is crowded all-day round.
At Krupówki, there are most of Zakopane's restaurants, pubs, clubs, discos, and shops. It's a place that is teeming with life almost all year round. A place where you can buy both oscypki (sheep's cheese which is a traditional Podhale delicacy) and exclusive clothing from the world's most expensive producers.
Krupowki Street is currently about 1100 m long, and runs from the intersection with Koscieliska and Nowotarska Streets to the intersection with Witkiewicza and Tetmajera Streets.
Krupowki Street took its name from the Krupówki Glade in its main part, belonging to the Krupowski or Krupow families. Initially it was the narrow path connected Zakopane's NAWSIE at Kościeliska Street with Kuźnice (ironworks in 1775-1881) running in the lower part among dispersed buildings, in the middle through meadows and marshes and in the upper through the original forest. On the picture above you can see the postcard from 1913 with Koscieliska and Krupowki Streets.
Some people say that Krupowki is the ugliest street in Poland, others think it is one of the prettiest. No doubt Krupowki is a very popular street and probably one of the best-known streets in our country.Barbara
Beautiful hotel, fantastic SPA, extraordinary breakfast. The location is quiet but very close walking to Krupowki Promenade and the main attractions of Zakopane.
Very friendly hotel located on the border of the Tatra National Park and only 10-15 minutes walk from the Krupowki Promenade. A great place for mountain hiking and walking in the woods fans.
