Church of St. cross

Church of St. cross

Going further towards the Tatra Mountains, you see on the right side a huge temple (next to it, you can quickly jump to ul. Zamoyski); it is the church of St.. Cross of the Tatra Parish, built in 1991 r. The interior can be intimidating with its vastness, elegance and coolness emanating from every corner. It is worth paying attention to the interesting bas-reliefs; the only figure visible is Christ, the presence of others can be inferred from discrete symbols – hand, scarves etc..

Monument to Chałubiński and Sabała

A little further uphill and here we are at the intersection of Chałubińskiego and Zamoyskiego Streets, where the monument of Tytus Chałubiński and Jan Krzeptowski Sabała stands. A column bearing the bust of the "King of the Tatras" grows out of the boulders arranged in the mound, which is supported by a life-size statue of sitting Sabała. The Bard of Podhale is holding a sponge in one hand, in the second, he should be holding a bow, but that the notorious theft of the Sabbath boy has become a diligently followed tradition, so the old highlander looks, as if he was threatening with an empty hand. The benches in front of the monument are a favorite resting place for tourists and walkers. Looking at old Sabała, one has an impression, that he is alive and froze only for a moment in thought. As if the conversation was about to go on:
– Boss, what are you doing, when you have time?
– I sit and pride.
– And if you don't have time?
– This is where I'm sitting.

Ul. Chałubińskiego is in contact with the following streets: Sienkiewicz, Witkiewicz and Jagiellońska, Kraszewski, To Bristol, Zamoyski, Slowacki Boulevards, al. Tatra Guides. Bronislaw Czech, On the way to Bystre.

Right away, where the monument stands, you can see the narrow road reflecting to the east, which connects ul. Chałubiński with the parallel Słowacki Boulevards.

Natural History Museum of the TPN

The upper section of ul. Chałubiński runs, among others. next to the Natural History Museum of the TPN, marked with the number 42a, which can be visited every day. with ex. pn. in hours. 9.00-14.00. The building of the museum and management of the Tatra National Park is hidden in a forested park, whose vitality and authenticity contrasts with the content of museum rooms. The stuffed animals of the Tatra forests make a slightly depressing impression, arranged in the backwoods arranged of dried branches and green drapery. Glass eyes staring at nothing, evoke catastrophic reflections – All right, that in anthropological museums no one came by, so far, for a similar idea. But on the other hand, this is the only opportunity for many visitors to see the marmot, bear or chamois. And that is why, while watching the harvest, feelings mix and the interest in the first skis disappears quite quickly, which he brought to Zakopane by St. 1894 r. Stanislaw Barabasz, father of Polish skiing, and admiration for good photos of the Tatra Mountains and flora and fauna.

Closing the door behind him, just cross the park and turn right, that is, towards the south, to be on the roundabout in a short time.
