This Snow Labyrinth In Poland Looks Like It’s Straight Out Of A Fairytale And It’s Larger Than 10 Tennis Courts

Many Europeans probably have heard of Zakopane – a small town in Poland of 32 square miles that is often referred to as “the winter capital of Poland.” It’s a popular destination for winter sports as well as tourism and is basically a ski resort.

But it’s not only known for that – Zakopane is home to the world’s biggest snow maze that would even make Stanley Kubrick proud. The giant maze is larger than ten tennis courts and was pieced together by using over 60,000 ice blocks.

This mesmerizing snow maze in Poland is the largest one in the world

It took about a month, 50 workers and over 60,000 ice blocks to build this winter wonderland. The mesmerizing ice structure is complete with a 16-meter snow castle too, that is full of chambers with hidden treasures and ice sculptures.

It spreads across 2500 square meters

When evening approaches, the maze is colorfully lit up which makes the whole mountain-surrounding area look like it came straight from a fairy tale.

Snowlandia has proved to be a huge hit among tourists, who enjoy getting lost in the maze and looking at the wonderful sculptures, made by artists from Poland and Slovakia. The Snowland will be opened again to the public from January 2020.

Happy to see something positive from Poland, as a Polish girl. Let's keep it that way.

Zakopane is very overpriced... Shame that most people cannot afford to spend a holiday in their own country :/ Good for tourists though

Looks like winter wonderland. I only heard of Zakopane while watching winter sports taking place there. This would another reason to visit (even though I don't have kids)
