Tatra Mountains, Poland

Located at the foot of the Tatra Mountains, Zakopane is Poland’s best-known mountain resort. With streets and rooftops that are especially picturesque when covered in snow, Zakopane is probably one of the most incredible places to go for Christmas.

Mt. Giewont. Probably the best known mountain peak in Poland (6263 ft). Its shape resembles that of a sleeping knight, who awaits a sign to rise in order to defend his homeland (according to the legend).

Can you see The Sleeping Knight (face, dip in the mountain is his neck, then body)?
