Chabówka [xaˈbufka] is a village located on the outskirts of the southern Polish town of Rabka, in the Nowy Targ County, Lesser Poland Voivodeship.[1] With population of 1,600 (as for 2006), Chabówka is a popular tourist attraction because of its location near the Gorce Mountains featuring Gorce National Park.

It also is an important rail junction, placed along the main line from Kraków to Zakopane, with another connection, to Nowy Sącz, beginning in Chabówka. Near the rail station there is a railway museum, with many examples of Polish-operated locomotives and rail cars.

Church of St. Brother Albert built in 1994
