High Tatras Sights

Escape the cities with a stop in the breathtaking scenery of the High Tatra mountains of Slovakia. Perfectly situated between Budapest and Krakow, the High Tatras are a natural paradise. Spending some time here will be a real change of pace from the rest of Slovakia and Central and Eastern Europe. Whether you're into hiking or just going for a wander, there's nothing quite like breathing that fresh mountain air! The High Tatras are a popular destination for tourists and Slovaks alike. It's easy to see why.

High Tatras Tourism

There are plenty of hiking trails of varying difficulty in the High Tatras. You can even go all the way to the top of the often snow-capped granite peaks. The High Tatras are also a popular ski area in the winter. There are chairlifts to make the ascent for you and there are a number of very nice hotels well. The High Tatras offer a little of everything, from sports to wellness and great restaurants. With beautiful landscapes at any time of year, this Slovak paradise is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Whether you're visiting Slovakia or traveling through Central Europe, we always recommend taking a load off here.

Where to stay in High Tatras

We have carefully selected two hotels in the High Tatras that we feel are in themselves an experience. The four star Grandhotel Praha celebrated its centenary in 2005 and it still retains many internal details harking back to that belle epoque period, though the newly reconstructed spa area is an all-modern affair. The five star Grand Hotel Kempinski takes things up a level further. Made up of what was once three hotels, built over 34 years, on the banks of the Strbske Pleso lake, this place really lives up to its name!

Things to do in High Tatras

We don't have any set excursions or tours in or around the High Tatras. We suggest simply taking in the scenery or if you're up for the challenge, go for a hike. There's also a skiing museum, a nod to the High Tatras being one of Europe's oldest winter sports resorts. Of course if you come in winter then you'll want to take to the slopes and enjoy some of the finest skiing in Central Europe.

What I love about High Tatras...

“Slovakia's most popular spot for tourists isn't its workaday capital. The big draw for the neighboring Czechs, Hungarians and Poles are its alpine-class mountains. The High Tatras have it all - ice cold mountain lakes, challenging hikes and in winter some epic skiing. But my favorite part, the Kempinski Grand Hotel with its luxurious spa, it's the ideal way to combine the great outdoors and creature comforts.”
