This is the perfect opportunity to learn about the Highlander culture of Zakopane and the surrounding Podhale region. We will take you to one of the oldest houses in Zakopane, once owned by one of the most famous highlanders. From there we will continue to a local cheese hut (Bacowka) where we will explain more about highlander culture and also sample different forms of the renowned smoked sheep's cheese.
On this tour we would like to introduce you to a completely different Zakopane that you may not have heard of. Not many people know that below the Tatras lived many Jewish families who worked here and had a big part in creating the town that we know today. There was a vibrant Jewish community with a synagogue, shops, workshops and even a cemetery here. Nowadays you can however barely find any signs of their past here but our guide will help you discover this lost world and rich cultural Jewish past.
