How to get there
- Most visitors to Morskie Oko choose a way via Palenica Białczańska which is the last car park 8.6 km before Morskie Oko. From Zakopane it is 22-25 km by car or by minibus (a ticket costs 10 PLN). There may be traffic jams in high season, so own car can be used preferably not during vacation months. It is also possible to go through Poronin, Bukowina Klin or the Oswald Balzer Road via Zazadnia. Palenica Białczańska (30-50 min) – the last car park before Morskie Oko, ticket office of the Tatra National Park, a rank of horse-drawn fiacres. Then on foot along an asphalt road. Wodogrzmoty Mickiewicza (Mickiewicz Waterfalls, 40 min), nice and informative views from the bridge, especially when water is high. A forester’s lodge “Wanta” (1.15 min) of the Tatra National Park, a blowdown on the left. A shortcut along a stone path (without prams). Włosienica (1.40 min). It is possible to get to Włosienica by a horse-drawn fiacre and in winter by sleigh (for several people) or by cart (for about a dozen people). A ride takes ca. 60 min. A large glade with a car park, formerly a bus stop with a ticket office, a rank of horse-drawn fiacres, catering facilities and “Tabor” summer campsite of the Polish Mountaineering Association. Morskie Oko (2 h, denivelation over 430 m).

A whole day trip, beautiful and informative. Moderate number of tourists even in high season.
