The history of Tatra tourism dates back to the nineteenth century, it then began a fascination with folk handicrafts among a group of Polish artists who - fascinated by Podhale and increasingly accessible Tatra Mountains - visited them both in summer and in winter. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, Zakopane became the cultural center of Poland, and the Tatra Mountains became the object of fascination for writers, philosophers, poets, painters and other representatives of the Young Poland bohemia. Many artists have left a trace of their fascination with the landscapes of Podhale, and their works, such as the painting 'Swiss stone pine in the Tatra Mountains' by Leon Wyczółkowski, can be seen today at the Tatra Museum in Zakopane.
