One of the most characteristic peaks of Tatra Mountains situated in their western part, north to the main Tatra range, on Polish side.

Photo Gallery


The Giewont peak, rising to 1894 m, is a symbol of Zakopane, the famous resort town in the south of Poland. In fact, its limestone cliff is visible from everywhere in the city. It is the most distinctive peak in the area and it has been referred to as the "Sleeping Knight" based on its silhouette and old legend.

Giewont is a symbolic mountain and has a special place in Polish national spirit and identity. Massif offers great views and wonderful summit panorama in all directions.

The best time of year to climb is from September through October when the Tatras around Zakopane characteristically have sunny weather.
