Private parking in Zakopane

As there are not enough public parking slots, private car parks were opened. Some of them (mainly those in the city centre) charge per hour, others for the whole day (mainly those close to the entrances to Tatra National Park). Usually, the payment can only be made with cash, and the price varies from 40 to 50 PLN/day. Most of them are so stuffed with cars, that they ask you to leave the keys, so that they could let the cars in and out.
