Popular trail leading from Kuźnice to
Kalatówki offers a great trip in winter conditions.
We begin our journey in Kuźnice. Trail
leads us with broad, rocky path, which is covered in snow on winter
period. After couple of minutes of easy approach, the road sharply
turns right, leaving TPN booth on the right side and trail branching
to Kasprowy Wierch. We follow the blue signs. After a while we go
under cable car route and turn left. After around 20-30 minutes we
get to st. brother Albert's hermitage, located on Albertine Sisters
monastery territory. This place can be visited for free. Yellow trail
turns right here, leading to Śpiąca Góra, where Albertine Brothers
monastery is located. We are going straight for a couple more
minutes, reaching ticket booth, where we should buy Tatra National
Park entry tickets. We can also choose Kalatówki hotel path variant
here – shorter or longer. If we go left (longer), we will find
ourselves on lower edge of the glade. To reach our destination, we
have to follow blue markings, and turn right after around 20 minutes.
Road to Kalatówki takes 20 more minutes from there. Whole section
takes around 40-50 minutes. If we, however, choose the shorter path,
we go straight and after around 15 minutes we'll arrive on place.
Both variants do not present any difficulties.
In Mountain PTTK Hotel on Kalatówki we
can warm up, eat and use the bathroom. During sunny weather we can
spend this time outside the building, admiring its surroundings. We
go back with one of two beforementioned paths.
