Zakopane, Tatra Mountains
Zakopane is a very popular place for Polish holidaymakers and is becoming quite a well known spot for foreigners too.
 Notable Species
Highlights, apart from the scenery, include Nutcracker and a decent chance of a sighting of a Golden Eagle - both of which, for differing reasons, can be spotted even with the high tourist traffic that is to be found in the area. Other birds typical of the area are Alpine Accentor, Wallcreeper, Ring Ouzel and Long-eared Owl.
