Krupowki is the main street of Zakopane, which is more than a kilometer long and runs in a southeasterly direction uphill. This pedestrian street attracts crowds of tourists during the tourist and ski seasons. In the past it was also called Zamoyski Street and got its name from the Krupówki Glade.
Description of the street
Krupówki is completely closed to traffic by car and bicycle. It is intended only for pedestrians. The street has a landmark significance for the city and is a concentration of various public institutions, stores, restaurants, hotels and other entertainment venues. In 1992, the street was upgraded with black basalt and gray granite cubes as well as red concrete cubes, creating bizarre patterns on its surface.
The street infrastructure has also been upgraded, including new slanted streetlights, benches and gutters. Krupowki is considered the focal point of Zakopane and is a popular place for photography and various entertainment for tourists.
