heading (paragraph): Hills
No. of pictures: 122 pictures
Lomnický Peak (2634 m) was taken for the highest from all Tatra peaks for long time in past. Nevertheless, we know that the highest one is those of gerlach peak (2655 m). Lomnicky Peak - (or Grandfather named by old Tatra inhabitants) - or Tatra King (named by Poles), belongs to most beautiful peaks of High Tatra Mountans.
Up to its top, where you can enjoy, apart from mountain bar and marvellous outlook terrace, you can be taken comfortably by means of cabin rope railway. So, thanks to this rope railway, even standard tourists, including families with children, old persons or handicapped people, are able to reach easily the peak. The only momemt you have to overcome, it is a freight against height, as the view to rope railway, hanging on the rope, without any supporting pillar, is really colossal.
Classical cabin rope railway takes you from Tatranská Lomnica to Skalnaté pleso (Rocky Lake), via Start Station, where you are not obliged to go out. Further, in Skalnaté pleso, you get into great red cabin (it is really for courageous persons only) and this cabin takes you up to the top.
We decided, with our friends, to take advantage of the possibility of accommodation directly at Lomnicky Peak, the highest situated room in Central Europe. So, I would like to present you some photos from such unforgettable excursion. You can find there different outlooks from the top, the pictures were made during a day or at night. Apart of this, you can have a look into observatory, where the scientists follow the sun, or have a look at the highest situated hotel-room, where we spent a night.
At Lomnický Peak, it is always a place of Sun Embassy for the whole Planet of the Earth. It is some type of play, where the persons can present the gifts with sun shines to each other, and so, to be nominated as Sun Ambassadors. The profit from such activity is donated for an operation of one from most known Slovak Charity systems, known as „Dobrý Anjel („Good Engel“).

The High Tatras are among the most popular places for tourists in Slovakia. In summer, many visitors from home and abroad come here to enjoy the magic of mountains or do some hiking. Sedlo pod Ostrvou is a popular spot for easy alpine tourism.
The Western Tatras is very popular and frequented mountain range. Treks here, the main ridge especially, are amazing and people who go there long remember it. Ostry Rohac is perhaps the most attractive and most well known peak in this area. Many tourists hike across it every year.
It is not necessary to provide you with some extensive introduction of the High Tatras. These mountains are simply splendid. They lay in the heart of Europe, being a well-known and popular destination among domestic and foreign tourists. Mostly those who love alpine treks travel here frequently. Koprovsky peak (2367 m) is one of the most famous and most visited points of interest there.
One beautiful day we came into conclusion to climb one of the Tatranian shields. Therefore, we travelled to Strbske Pleso lake and from there we set off for the Salisko summit.
It is not much long since we have visited the town of Svit, famous for its Bata brick houses. Then we said that we would like to return here. This summer it happened. Instead of exploring the town we set off in the nature.
After visiting many places we return to nature today. Our steps lead us to beautiful, untamed, and unique Western Tatras, concretely to the Rohace.
As the weather outside is good for winter activities, we decided to go on a moderately demanding ski mountaineering ascent to Skalnata chata. The starting point was the valley station of the cable cars in Tatranská Lomnica, where a large-capacity car park and a complete visitor infrastructure have been built.
This week we visit the Tatras as well. However, their cognition will no longer be child's eyes, but rather a factual way. We will focus on their history, monuments, nature and tourism through a new and richly illustrated tourist guide - Tatra - from the family publishing house Dajama.
Between the Belianske Tatras and Spisska Magura, the picturesque Goral village of Zdiar spreads out. Come along with us for a short walk through this vibrant village and discover its history, sights, customs, or attractions in the area.
In the northeastern cornerof Slovakia, in the region of Presov, you will discover the small town of Stara Lubovna. A majestic castle of the same name rises above the town.. Let us now visit it together and see the exhibition in the Museum of Folk Architecture.
Perhaps none of the High Tatra summits enjoy such popularity as Rysy does. For fans of alpine tourism, they are an attractive and grateful destination for tours. To get to this favorite Tatra Hill we will introduce the following article.
In the second part of our series of articles on safety in the mountains we will deal with little Alps High Tatra, which are characteristic of their unique alpine mountains in Slovakia. Their articulation and slope are among the most dangerous pitfalls that ordinary visitors must overcome not only in winter.
Just at the end of last year, I came to an understanding with my friend that this year's St. Valentine holiday we would prepare for our partners an unrepeatable experience in a form of so called „long weekend“ in High Tatra Mountains.
A majestic shield of Kriváň Peak (2494 m) is not the highest in Slovakia but, no doubt, it is most known and popular among the other Tatra Peaks.
Beauty and pain, this is an actual picture of highest Slovakian mountains. The gale which run about across Tatra Mountains, cut its non-effaced message into this well-known countryside.
The third part of our series of articles about safety in the mountains will be about small Alps High Tatra, but this winter succeeds summer. Seemingly, we can assume that the accident in the summer is lower because so many of us lurking natural hazards such as in winter, but the contrary is the case of true.
Soon winter closure of Tatranian tourist trails (15th June 2014) weill end. Therefore, in advance we bring you an interesting alpine hike trip. Our goal today is the peak of the peaks, the symbol of Slovakia – majestic Krivan in the High Tatras.
As many other places in the High Tatras (2314 meters) even Bystre Sedlo is not that well known among tourists. Perhaps, it is given to the fact that there is no cottage that would offer tourists some refreshments after being whole day on food. Or, perhaps, the route is not leading to any of the High Tatras’ peaks. There are only a few people but you will definitely enjoy your time in untouched Tatran nature.
Today our steps head to a Tatranian village located beneath the second highest peak in Slovakia. Lomnicky Stit. Tatranska Lomnica is one of the most beautiful areas of Vysoke Tatry city district. It hides not only rich architectural history, or the largest ski resort in the Tatras but also the new Ski museum.
Fall is perfect for walks in nature. Today we follow spa sidewalk, which is less known to the public, that we accidentally discovered in the High Tatras, in the village of Stary Smokovec.
The Tatranian National Park offers many beauties. High and steep mountains, deep valleys, majestic falls, unseen beautiful fauna and flora and also beautiful things hidden in depths of the area such as various caves. Only one of them, though, is open to the public.
In Stary Smokovec in the High Tatras there was ceremonial opening of the Alpine Clubhouse in the beginning of May. It is a great place for everyone who likes being in mountains. The Clubhouse interconnects relaxation, knowledge and services not only for mountaineers.
Every true Czechoslovak visited Štrbské Pleso. This Slovakian prides is located in High Tatras and is strictly demarcated by nature. It requires no physical endurance and despite cold it is a cozy place opened to everyone who comes to see it.
Again after two years had been held a popular and extraordinary Slovakian festival devoted to amateur production on mountains – Horalfest. Dozens of visitors, Slovakia movie premieres, interesting workshops, and amazing atmosphere – this is what enhanced the motto of the festival – Found yourself in mountains.
Tomorrow starts great and unique (in Slovakia) 7th year of Horalfest, which takes place in the High Tatras. The festival is devoted to amateur production on mountains and the event will take place in Teniscenter in Tatranská Lomnica during two following days (November 23rd and 24th 2012). The event is under the patronage of High Tatras mayor Ing. Ján Mokoš.
In the first part of articles about Tatra railway we wrote about the beginning of its history and we learned about the technical world unique -"Tatra intercity trolleybus." Today we will focus on the modern railway history from the early 20th century to the present.
