On the 10th June, 2019 at 8.30 a.m. classes 1g and 2f with their teachers : Ms Roma Ociepa, Ms  Sylwia Denis,  Mr Łukasz Jarząbek and a guide from the “Mamuno” travel agency left Częstochowa and set out for Zakopane for a four-day trip.

Day 1 GUBAŁÓWKA

At 1 p.m. we arrived at the place – it was a small village Ząb which is located on the eastern side of Gubałówka Hill. Unfortunately, the guide informed us about the change of accommodation from the guesthouse “Za lasem” in Poronin to the guesthouse “U Aniołka” in Murzasichle. After leaving the bus, we started our expedition from hiking Gubałówka Hill along Pope’s Trail. During the way, the guide told us about interesting places located there. Despite the tiredness of the journey and the road uphill, all of us safely reached our destination. Being at the top of Gubałówka Hill we could admire – Butorowy Wierch (1660m above the sea level), a ski resort, the panorama of the Tatra Mountains, Zakopane, Podhale, Pieniny, Gorce and Beskid Żywiecki and a chairlift. The next 2 hours were organized for the purchase of souvenirs or eating a meal. At the agreed time we went down from Gubałówka Hill to the place where the bus was waiting for us. At 6:00 p.m. we arrived at the guesthouse “U Aniołka” in Murzasichle, where we ate a meal. After unpacking our suitcases, we had time to use the infrastructure of the facility or the pool that was located in the guesthouse.

Day 2 Kościeliska Valley and thermal pools

At 8.30 a.m. we ate breakfast and at 10:00 a.m. we took a bus to the place where the second guide was waiting for us – we started the journey through Kościeliska Valley. The guide told us about the history associated with highlanders and their customs. We also encountered a “bacówka”, where everyone could taste the freshly made, traditional delicacy of the mountains – oscypek. The views were so beautiful. We could stop by the spring and even try the water flowing there. The aim of our trip was the mountain hut “Ornak”, where we could eat a meal. A memorial picture with a guide was taken there. After going back to the bus, we went to a picturesque village Poronin, where we spent 2 hours taking a bath in the thermal waters. Jacuzzis and a pool designed to play volleyball, gave us an opportunity for both rest and play. In the evening we also had a great time – we organized a bonfire and a disco.

Day 3 NOSAL and KRUPÓWKI

At 10:00 a.m. we started a mountain tourthe top of the Nosal Mountain (1206m above the sea level). Despite our enthusiasm it was not easy to reach the summit, because the road was not easy and we do not belong to people often walking in the mountains. However, after all, we reached the summit, where the memorial photographs were taken. Going down from the top, we went to the district of Zakopane- Kuźnice, and then to the most popular street in Zakopane – Krupówki, where we could see several horse-drawn carriages. We had free time to buy souvenirs, eat a traditional meal or enter various shops located there. At 6:00 p.m. we arrived at the guesthouse, where we ate a meal and spent our last night in the mountains. in the Western Tatras – climbing to the top of the Nosal Mountain (1206m above the sea level). Despite our enthusiasm it was not easy to reach the summit, because the road was not easy and we do not belong to people often walking in the mountains.

Day 4 CRACOW

After packing our things, we ate breakfast and said goodbye to the guesthouse in Murzasichle. At 11:30 a.m. we were in Cracow. We started the tour traditionally from the Wawel Castle , through the Wawel Cathedral, the Barbican and the Main Market Square (St. Mary’s Church, St. Adalbert’s Church, the Cloth Hall) – where we also had free time to eat and buy souvenirs. At 4:00 p.m. we left Cracow. On the way back we all sang and thanked the teachers for the care. We were in Częstochowa at 6:15 p.m.

To sum up, I consider the trip to Zakopane to be successful. Sightseeing, swimming in thermal waters and climbing to the top of Nosal Mountain gave us a lot of fun. In addition, we all got integrated and got to know each other better. I think that now everyone is looking forward to the next such trip in the next school year.
