One of the most revered and popular mountains in Zakopane, the Giewont Mountain is visible from the main city and is said to be its guardian as well. The tallest summit of the mountain is a famous pilgrimage spot in the city. There is a famous old cross that was erected centuries ago and is visited by people from all over the world. Hikers will love to explore this mountain thanks to its highly daunting tracks. Despite the risk, the views of the Tatra Valley from these tracks are highly mesmerising and very popular with those who have scaled the mountain previously. Legends of an oversleeping knight resting on the mountain has led it to be named as the ‘Sleeping Mountain.’
