Kasprowy Wierch is one of the best-known peaks in the Polish Tatras. It owes its popularity to the cable car, built in 1936. It was a pioneering undertaking from which all of Poland was proud. Today it is the oldest cable car in Europe. The first wagons could transport only several dozen passengers to Kasprowy peak, and tickets had to be bought many days in advance. Today’s modern cable car has many times more bandwidth, which is however limited due to the protection of nature of the Tatra National Park. From the top of Kasprowy there is a beautiful view of the highest ridges of the High and West Tatras and Zakopane.
