The construction of the ski jumping hill at Krokiew hill in Zakopane, designed by Karol Stryjeński and the Swede Sellestroem, began in 1924. The opening of the facility took place on March 22, 1925. Four years later, the first World Championships were held there (won by Norwegian Sigmund Ruud) - on this occasion the hill was rebuilt. The next reconstruction as an 80 meter hill took place before the second World Championships in Zakopane, which were held in 1939 (victory of Austrian Sepp Bradl).
After World War II the hill was immediately reconstructed and from 1946 (until 1994), the annual prestigious Memorial of Bronisław Czech and Helena Marusarzówna with an international cast was held at Wielka Krokiew. In 1961 on the enlarged hill for the first time it fell 100 meters - by Nikolai Shamov from the USSR. A year later, for the third time there was a World Championships in Zakopane (German Helmut Recknagel won), and apparently 125,000 spectators gathered around the hill.
In the 1979/80 season, the Czech & Marusarzówna Memorial joined the calendar of the first in the history World Cup edition. World Cup was to be held on the K115 hill in Zakopane also a season later, but was cancelled due to lack of snow. In 1989, the hill was slightly modified and furthermore the patron of the hill was changed from constructor Karol Stryjeński, whose name the hill had carried since 1932, to recently deceased Stanisław Marusarz, Nordic skiing hero from Zakopane and silver medalist at the 1938 WSC.
The next competitions of the World Cup in Zakopane took place in 1996, 1998 and 1999, but then the was out-dated and the certificate expired in 2000. Since the reconstruction of the hill as K120, World Cups have been taking place in Zakopane every year. In 2002, around 100,000 people cheered on Adam Małysz, who had won his first World Cup Crystal Globe in the season before. Furthermore, the Winter Universiade was held here in 2001.
In 2004, plastic matting was placed on the Wielka Krokiew - and for the first time the Summer Grand Prix competition was held, which gathered 28,000 spectators. The last thorough modernization took place in two stages - in 2016 the inrun was renovated, on which frozen tracks were installed, and in 2017 the landing slope was rebuilt, thanks to which the hill was enlarged to the K125 / HS140.
Interestingly, in June 1997, at the Wielka Krokiew a mass with the participation of 250,000 believers was celebrated by Pope John Paul II.
Furthermore, Zakopane has been bidding - unfortunately not successfully - multiple times in recent years to host another Nordic World Ski Championships.

Tajner 2004

To my knowledge Wojciech Tajner jumped 142 meter on July 12, 2004. I know it was a private jumping, but as an inofficial record in summer it should count imho.

Świetna miejsce. Byłem rok temu, naprawdę robi wrażenie. Cieszy mnie, że w Polsce powstają takie miejsca i są utrzymywane. Planuję się także wybrać w tym roku, poleca ktoś jakiś dobry hotel niedaleko? Rok temu byłem w Crocusie ( ale w tym roku szykam raczej czegoś mniejszego :)
