SK, High Tatras – Alpine Clubhouse in Stary Smokovec
This unique Alpine Clubhouse has been established as a result of cooperation of Tatravia RRA, Horsky internetovy klub o.s. and the ViaTrek s.r.o. company. Its primary purpose is to promote the Tatras and the Region of the Tatras.

Despite several people who enjoy mountains there was a group of Ukrainian tourists and also the mayor of Vysoke Tatry city Mr. Jan Mokos attended as well as several other officials. Ivan Kenez of Ruzomberok interconnected the ceremonial opening with a photo-vernissage showing the photos. The photos were devoted to the 7th Horalfest.
