Gubalowka

Gubałówka (1,120 m) is a mountain above the Polish town of Zakopane and it is a popular tourist attraction, offering commanding views of the Tatra Mountains across the valley below. The large number of visitors especially in the winter months, inspired the venture, opened in 1938, and the line remains popular, having been rebuilt in 2001 with new carriages and stations.

As in all funiculars, on the Gubałówka, a continuous steel cable is attached to a pair of tram-like carriages set at a steep angle on narrow gauge rails. These two carriages travel up and down the mountain slope. The line is single, apart from one automatically controlled passing place situated roughly halfway up. The cable runs between the rails, guided by numerous roller wheels. Street style lighting is provided along the whole length of the line.

The standard return fare is 18.00 Zł. ( approx.  4.- €uros )

Many tourists describe the Gubałówka as a „must-see“.Every passionate hiker will love the great view from Gubałówka as well as people who maybe “climb” such a mountain for the first time.
