Travel Tips for Vysoke Tatry
Spring water galore
When you are trekking in the High Tatras, you need to drink a lot as you sweat in the sunshine. A bottle or can of drink is not enough for a long hike and more would be too heavy to carry. But what are mountain springs for? Here water is pure, tasty and ... free. So, if you see a spring, stock up for the next leg of your journey. But beware - you will not encounter any springs on some trails, e.g. to Slavkovsky Stit - ask people who have been where you are going about the water in advance.
To give you access to spring water, the Slovaks can even construct interesting aqueducts, like the one in the second photo. Here, spring water has been made to flow down an indentation in a pole thrown across a ravine. The little cottage with a spout at the end of the pole makes it look like an ordinary spring.
Never the same, always great
Wherever you go in the High Tatras, the scenery changes from minute to minute, so trekking the Tatras in a hurry just to reach that day's destination is an unimaginable crime of ignoring nature's beauty set before you. Take your time and see its wonders from all possible angles and in the changing light.
If possible, go and see the Tatras in various seasons, which put many different garments on them, of different shades and colours but always beautiful. In the picture, a view of Zdiar and the Belianske Tatry from a hill to the east of the village.
Hehe and here is the photo that proves I have been there to see Symbolic Cemetery. Anyway, I forgot to mention that there is no grave on this cemetery, it is just like monument remembering the victims of these wonderful mountains. They are wonderful and exciting but sometimes also dangerous...
Walking in HIgh Tatras is the main activity of course. You can climb or do another things but walking is for all. There are tons of paths for tourists ranked according to the difficulty and time needed for the walk. Tatranska magistrala is the system of these paths and you can easily go according to the map. I love the walk from Studenovodske Waterfalls to Tatranska Lomnica (it is very easy way) and the way to Skalnate pleso...(more difficult one)
Visit Poprad. It's a nice town in the front of the High Tatry chain. There are some good sights but I recommend you to walk the downtown, meet some incredibly polite locals and have a beer or two...
