I am looking for a destination with thermal spas and a quaint village feel. However, since I will go along, I am not going to hike or ski. My target dates are the last week of April. Not sure how the weather would be like. It'll be cold, for sure. Does the Zakopane area fit this bill? I will rely on public transit.
How big is the village? Is it mainly just one street? Are there other nearby villages to explore?
Is it convenient to go from there to other thermal spas on the Slovakia side?
I like Poland because it's very safe (much safer than western Europe, especially now), affordable, and authentic. It's harder and harder to find places not littered with chain stores.
