Arriving in Poprad we decided to stay at the hotel next to the railway station but it would have been better to have found a hotel in Stary Smokovec. The train from Poprad only takes 30 min and you are right in the mountain area. Poprad itself is very uninspiring. We decided to travel to Zakopane in Poland. The bus... More

Instead of taking the wagon, we chose to walk all the way up and all the way down. I regret nothing, even though my muscles were sour for the next 4 days. Weather was fantastic for such climb, but it would have been tricky with rain. Take a coat - it's a bit frosty up there. Excellent idea to offer... More

It's better to avoid most popular and crowded paths especially that rarely visited paths and places are as much beautiful and dont be one of unprepared fools without proper shoes and equipment. If you will meet those conditions you can experiance true spirit of Tatras Mountains.

Only getting round to sharing my experiences as I visited in Nov. 2015 as part of an international field trip with my university. Our small group of 15 students resided in the village of płone on the Slovakian border, a region well know for the wild inhabitants, wolves, Lynx, badgers and the occasional bear! The purpose of our trip was... More

Tatra Mountains are beautiful and have a few demanding trails which I like, but big disadvantage is that there's too much people. Mainly in summer weekends. Recently I was in Tatras in december and even then on weekend there were pretty many tourists.

We were lucky to have a good wheather. Compare to Alps, High TaTras are less comfortable. They are improving, but still have to do a lot. I hope in 5-10years the service will be austrian level

Some beautiful scenery and challenging trails on the Polish side but I was shocked. I'm used to walking in the Lake District which I thought had become commercialised but at least peaceful - this is way OTT. On some of the more popular trails you literally have to queue to move forward. Don't expect any peace and solitude here -... More

Tatras mountains amazing destination for trekkers. I was in Poland side. Wonderful views, amazing experience. But avoid the period from August 15- this is a national festival for Polish and Lithuanians so too crowded at this period. If you do not want to stay in tents, make sure you book mountain lodges very very much in advance before your trek.... More
