Is Poronin good for solo travel?


Safety:Very safe

Poronin is generally a safe place to visit. It is a small town with friendly locals and cases of crime are quite rare. However, like any other place, it is important to be alert and aware of your surroundings, especially when you are alone. Basic safety precautions such as avoiding secluded areas during night-time and keeping your valuables safe should be followed. Polish people are usually helpful and respectful towards tourists.


Poronin is relatively simple to navigate due to its compact size. Although it lacks an extensive public transportation system, much of the town can be explored on foot. The locals are friendly and often willing to provide directions. For longer distances, private taxis are available which provide relatively reasonable prices.
Things to do:

Things to do:Moderate

Poronin offers a moderate range of activities, mainly focusing on natural attractions and outdoor pursuits. It is home to the Tatra Mountains, giving unlimited hiking and sightseeing opportunities. Winter activities like skiing and snowboarding are popular, while Podhale region's rich culture and traditional food offer a fascinating insight into local life. It might not offer an extremely diverse slate of activities, but it's perfect for nature lovers and those in search of tranquillity.

Food:Above average

The food scene in Poronin offers a decent variety ranging from traditional Polish to international cuisine. You can find everything from hearty pierogis, sour rye soup, mountain cheeses, and smoked meats to contemporary twists on classic dishes and delicious pastries. While it might not have the food variety of major global cities, the tastes, quality, and dedication to traditional cooking styles and flavors make dining an enjoyable experience. However, if you are looking for a mixture of exotic cuisines, it might fall a bit short.


Poronin is pretty budget-friendly especially when compared to more popular European destinations. The cost of living is quite reasonable with affordable accommodation, food and local transportation options. It's possible to have a good experience without overspending. However, it may not be as inexpensive as some of the other countries in Eastern Europe.

Group travel experience

If you want to wake up every day in silence with a view of the mountains, this is the place for you. It's a hilly area. Some houses are on the tops, some on the lowlands, but if you happen to be on top, you won't regret it. The whole area is in different paths. You can walk and enjoy the views. There are no entertainments in Murzasichle, as in the city, they can be found in the cities nearby. Murzasichle is worth a trip if you want peace and quiet in your soul because the view of the mountains is definitely breathtaking. To go to the mountains, you will need to drive off from Murzasichle to a certain place, from where you will start your long walk. If you are not so fond of long walks, then you can use the services of a stableman and get to a huge lake of incredible beauty in the middle of a mountain on a wagon. The road to the lake is paved and wide. If you like walking, and especially climbing higher in the mountains, then you can reach the lake on foot, deviating from the main road and observing different views, also, having reached the lake, you can go up further to another lake, which is even higher. Near the first huge lake, there is a bar where you can eat, but in any case, I advise you to stock up on your own food, comfortable shoes, and sunscreen :)
