Morskie Oko lake

As the snows retreat, the thick ice caps-covered lakes are starting to melt, and very soon we will see the gentle side of the lake again. Speaking of lakes, Poland boasts thousands of lakes and waterways, which includes one of the most popular destinations in the Tatras, Morskie Oko lake, which means “Eye of the Sea” in English.

Morskie Oko is the largest and arguably most beautiful lake in the Tatra Mountains. This emerald-green Morskie Oko hidden in the vast Tatras is surrounded by high mountain peaks reaching over 2000 meters, hovering over the famous winter resort of Zakopane, which creates a breathtaking panorama and makes it the best hiking spot of Poland for a reason.

On the way to the lake, you will be able to admire the picturesque Wodogrzmoty Mickiewicza waterfalls. And at the end of the trail, there are two lovely mountain huts, overlooking Morskie Oko Lake, one of which is the oldest existing mountain hut in the Polish Tatra Mountains. When you arrive at the lake, you will be completely blown away by the unobstructed panorama. This blue-green alpine lake is formed during the sculpting processes of the last ice age, you can easily find trout through the clear water in summer. Gaze into Morskie Oko lake and admire the reflection of the highest polish peak (Rysy, reaching 2,503 m) on the surface. Morskie Oko is truly a wonder of nature and has its own beauty in different seasons of the year.
