Third great tour with Christopher. Stunningly memorable views of the Tatra range from both sides of the Polish-Slovak border. Fortunate to attend Sunday Mass at a local Slovak church, & a very good meal at a pleasant restaurant. Then on to the Polish ski town Zakopane, with its bustling markets of local treasures. Refreshing stop at a nice sweet shop for a pot of tea and cream cakes, a must-taste local favorite. Throughout the day, Christopher was attentive, engaged, & a passionate advocate for the area.
