PKL Gubalowka - some interesting information
It is worth noting that the railway was established in 1938, and its construction lasted less than 170 days. It was the second railway of this type in our country, right after the one that is located in Krynica-Zdroj. Its task was not only to transport tourists but also residents and supplies. The first wagons were delivered by a Swiss company.
In 2001, the railway underwent thorough modernization. The new wagons are comfortable, modern, and have a glass roof, which makes it easier to enjoy the views. It can accommodate about 120 people at once. The ride gives you a lot of positive feelings. Riding up for 300 meters allows you to get excited about the scenery you start to see. We guarantee that you will remember this short journey and will recommend it to your friends.
Where exactly is the Gubalowka funicular? Its bottom station is located in the center of Zakopane, the street that leads to the PKL bottom station is "ul. Na Gubalowke", it is a market street that is full of gastronomic points and souvenir stalls. The street is an extension of Krupowki street.

Tourists who visit the Gubalowka mountain, spend a lot of time enjoying the scenery. This is quite understandable. In spring, summer, autumn, or winter - landscapes are always fabulous. However, on the top, you can also go shopping or try delicious meals from regional cuisine. A big attraction from April to November is the gravitational slide. You slide down on carts that reach a speed of 23 km / h. In summer, various activities are organized for children at Gubalowka, including art. In the winter, however, you can enjoy skiing stunts from the perspective of a comfortable deckchair. You can't get bored at this summit!
