Porthcurno was once an important place on the was the centre of the world telecommunication and,until recently there was a trainning school for that industry to which people came from all over the world.The porthcurno Telegraphraph museum remains as a testament to the past.It incorporates tunnels well below the surface use to house top secret equipment during the 2nd world war.
porthcurno about three miles east of lands end on the south coast of the west cornwall. it faces south-east and lies in the western corner of lovely porthcurno bay.A wide footpath gently slopes down to the beach from a large car park around 200 yards above.
There is a cafe across the road from the car park and a restaurant not far away during the the car park are the public toilets and a telephone.The sandy beach shelves quite swiftly.
On the cliffs to the west of porthcurno is the world famous Minack Theatre,this wonderful open air venue commands superb views across Porthcurno bay,with it's turquoise water and golden rocks,as far as Lizard.between may and september each year ,performances are given by a veriety of theatrical companies.An Exhibition centre tells the story of a variety of theatrical companies. An exhibition centre tells the story of how a village play in 1929 led to the seventeen week summer season now staged in the 150 seat auditorium.The Minack Theatre was the inspiration and the life's work of rowena cade.There is a cafe on the site and sub-tropical rockeries,based on the cliff garden developed here by Rowena cade in the 1930s.the salt-tolerant succulents thrive,despite the wind,providing an added dash of colour during the year.

Also there are many rewarding walks along the cliffs and coastal path from Porthcurno,westwards towards Porthgwarra and Land's End.

hotels in zakopane poland

Most hotels in Zakopane are located in the centre, which mainly means Krupowki Street. Staying in a centrally located hotel in Zakopane is a good choice if you want to feel the vibrant atmosphere of the town, enjoy comfortable accommodation in Zakopane and stunning views of the Tatra Mountains.

The longest pedestrian avenue in Poland, this sloping street is lined with good shops, cafes, nice restaurants, highlander houses made of wood and plenty of interesting attractions of Zakopane. Hotels in this area are very attractive and conveniently located. There are horse carriages instead of cars, a stream running down from a forest, and a great traditional market with cheese, furs and wooden furniture in the lower part of Krupowki. Some of the best hotels in Zakopane are located near this fashionable street, which is certainly the number-one location in the Polish Tatras.
Outside the area.
People who come for a short time tend to stay in the city centre, but Zakopane accommodation right on the mountain slopes or in the charming valleys are also extremely popular among the visitors of Zakopane. Hotels in this area are mostly chosen by visitors who come to enjoy nature, hiking or skiing. From a Zakopane hotel, situated in this location, you can also quickly get to Slovakia.

Zakopane is a hotel paradise. There are still not enough hotels in Zakopane to meet the demand in the high summer season, in December, January and in February. The best Zakopane hotels are booked out almost for the whole year and it is thus advisable to plan your stay in Zakopane hotels in advance. In winter it becomes "the winter capital of Poland" and the number of visitors increases. Come to see how deservedly popular Zakopane is and do not be afraid to venture into the beautiful Tatra Mountain.

I like this hotel......... Hotel Litwor..... Krupówki 40, 34-500 Zakopane
