1. . Walk around the neighborhood

Antałówka - Koziniec - Chałubińskiego Street - Zamoyskiego Street - Witkiewicza Street - Antałówka

Leaving the guesthouse on the left, along Wierchowa street, we are climbing higher. Behind the recreation center "Panorama" is the end of the asphalt road and on the top of Antałówka (940 m above sea level) we reach the field paths, from where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Tatra Mountains and the southern part of Zakopane. If you continue going to the east, you will come back to the asphalt road called Antałówka. Between modern villas we come to the crosswise Droga na Antałówkę Street and then turn right. A corner house with stylish architecture is a wooden villa "Śmigło", built in 1935. according to the design of architect Adolf Szyszko-Bohusz. Since 1951 the Tatra Scientific Station of the Institute of Nature Conservation of the Polish Academy of Sciences has been located here. It was established to facilitate the work of scientists conducting research in the Tatra Mountains. It has guest rooms, a library and laboratories, while the garden "Śmigło" has a Tatra plants greenhouse, where scientific studies are being performed. The organizer and first station manager was doctor Zofia Radwańska-Paryska, and now the station is headed by professor Halina Piękoś-Mirkowa.

Near "Śmigło" we go down the road to the south and after a while we reach a large wooden building called "Witkiewiczówka". (Antałówka Street 6). The villa was built between 1903-04 according to the design of Jan Koszczyca-Witkiewicz, the nephew of the creator of the Zakopane style.

The first owner was Stanisław Witkiewicz's sister - Maria. Between December 1931 and September 1939, Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz - Witkacy (1885-1939) lived here. We go down to the crossroads of Droga na Antałówkę  and Broniewskiego Streets and going further in the same direction we start to go up to the next hill - Koziniec. The powerful silhouette of the "Dom pod Jedlami" is becoming more and more visible in front of us. This is the largest and most beautiful building, designed in Zakopane style by Stanisław Witkiewicz. The villa (1 Koziniec Street) was built in 1897. for Jan Gwalbert Pawlikowski (1860-1939). The house is a private property and can be viewed only from the outside. However, it is worth doing it, because only from a close up you can see all the beauty of Witkiewicz's project, especially in the field of ornamentation.

From Koziniec we go southwards (attention - narrow road, no sidewalks). On the right is the Włodzimierz and Jerzy Kulczycki Art Gallery, a branch of the Tatra Museum. Behind it to the right there are steep stairs which lead us to the Droga na Bystre Street, which leads us to the right - towards the town.  Going along the Droga na Bystre Street we reach Rondo, where we turn right into Chałubińskiego Street.

We go down the Chałubińskiego Street. On the left side, in the forest, there is a slightly hidden building (42 Chałubińskiego Street),  which is the seat of the museum and the educational center of the Tatra National Park (TPN) "Centrum Edukacji Przyrodniczej"; next to this building there is the information point of the TPN. The Chałubińskiego street continues to run straight ahead, while the Zamoyskiego street runs to the left. Between these two streets there is a family property of the Chałubiński family, with a small wooden house. On the square at the crossroads there is a monument of doctor Chałubiński, designed by Stanisław Witkiewicz.

Opposite "Goplana" there is the territory of the church of the Holy Cross. Right next to the church there is the "Oksza" villa, which is the third work of Stanisław Witkiewicz, the creator of the Zakopane style. Its project was created in the period from 1894 to 1895 for Bronisława and Wincenty Korwin-Kossakowski, as evidenced by the correspondence between Stanisław Witkiewicz and the founders.

Reaching the crossroads of Krupówki Street and Witkiwicza Street, on the right side deep into the street you can see a nice building in Zakopane style (77 Krupówki Street). This is "Ślimak" Villa , popularly known as "Zośka", built around 1900. In the years 1923-1928 "Zoska" was leased by Maria Witkiewiczowa, widow of Stanisław, who ran a guesthouse there. At that time, her son, Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, was a frequent guest in "Zoska".

If you turn into  Witkiewicza Street, you will reach Jagiellońska Street and then Wierchowa Street,  where the Antałówka Guesthouse is located.
