Lake Morskie Oko, Tatra National Park

#1 of 11 in Things to do in Tatra National Park
Gaze into Lake Morskie Oko and admire the reflection of snow-capped mountains on the surface of one of the deepest lakes in the Tatra mountains. One of the surrounding peaks is Rysy, the tallest of the Tatras. To fully appreciate its beauty, you'll have to hike up using a wide tarmac trail for 10 km (6.2 mi), or hitch a ride on a horse cart. You can travel to the base of the hiking trail by van from Zakopane's main road. A chalet at the top sells snacks, water, and other beverages for you to eat inside the chalet or outside; both options offer a view of the lake. For Lake Morskie Oko and beyond, use our Tatra National Park trip itinerary website to get the most from your Tatra National Park vacation.
