History

About Jumping Hill

Wielka Krokiew in Zakopane was designed by Karol Stryjewski and was built in 1925. The hill was featured in competitions at the 1939 and 1962 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships as well as the 2001 Universiade and FIS Junior Nordic World Ski Championships (2008).

In 1997, Pope John Paul II, while visiting his native country, celebrated a mass at the hill's stadium.

Since 2001, due to the success of Polish jumper Adam Małysz, Wielka Krokiew has seen some of the largest audiences in World Cup ski jumping.
