Zakopane also held the Nordic WCh twice but it's not going back there anytime soon. There's still only one road from the nearest airport in Krakow and well, it's notoriously jammed all year. I bet if you took a bus from Kosice you'd get to Zakopane faster than from Krakow :lol:

Totally forgot about that! Now they have to do something with the ski jumping hill complex, right? :p Or will they hold the ski jumping in Szczyrk? :lol:
