The town of Nowy Targ

Nowy Targ is the nearest large town to Rabka-Zdroj. Like most Polish towns, it has a central square with a decent cafe, clean toilets, shops, banks etc.

The central square in Nowy Targ (photo below right) has a lawned area with flower beds and seating. There is an outdoor coffee shop and tables for the warm summer months. A car park is in the centre of the square, public toilets to one side.

A Polish craft shops at one side of the square sells kilim or traditionally made tapestries, embroderies and similar items. These make lovely although fairly expensive gifts.

Poles adore their ice creams; a shop facing the square has permanent queues of people waiting to buy the smietankowe or real cream and fruit ice creams.
