The Oscypek Museum in Zakopane is a place, where visitors can see how the most popular highlander cheese is made in front of their eyes, with every production stage showcased in line with its traditional recipe.
Experienced highlanders tell the visitors about shepherds and why they came to the Tatra Mountains, as well as explain terms like kosor, ferula and pucenie – a sheep enclosure, a mixing stick and cheese making. Under the watchful eye of the hosts, the visitors can try their hand at making their own cheese. The Museum shop offers the highest quality original highlander cheeses, as well as souvenirs and handicrafts.
