    Spišská Sobota

    Spi��sk�� Sobota
    3 more images

    Poprad is probably best known for access to the Tatra Mountains but, just ouside the centre and now incorporated into the municipality, is Spišská Sobota, a small village (and conservation area). Burghers' houses surround an attractive square and the place has a charming central-European Baroque feel to it. Specific sights are limited but it does have a 15th century church (with a prized 1516 altar) and a Renaissance bell-tower similar to others in the area. If your visit to the area allows you time for Kežmarok or Levoča, all well and good but if time is limited and you want a glimpse of old Slovakia, try Spišská Sobota.

    a must for hike lovers

    15 km before Tatranska Lomnica a train drive you up the mountain to 1250m.
    Sorry forgot the name of that village.
    It’s also possible to walk to that point, like my kids and I did.
    Our dog wasn’t allowed to go by train without a muzzle, we forgot to bring one, so we went up walking and I am sure we pleased him much more with that.
    Sometimes the rain came down on us but that was a welcome cooler after some very HOT days.

    Hiking and Skiing

    by MATIM Written Sep 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the outside area of Poprad you have beautiful panorama’s at the high Tatra.
    And if you like hiking Poprad is an excellent starting point for a hike in the high Tatra.
    At Tatranska Lomnica is a cable cabin which leads you to the higest top of the high Tatra (2632 m)
    You pass mountain lake Skalnaté pleso (1751) there you find also a ski elevator which has the Lomnické Sedlo (2190m) as ending point.
    This ski elevator is only open during winter time.

    Spisska Sobota

    by aroundtheglobe Written Jan 12, 2006

    Poprad city center is nice. But it's absolutely a must to visit the old part Spisska Sobota. I have never seen such a cozy old town before! It's abandonned and not crowded at all. The streets are covered with snow and the medieval houses very lovely. if you're interested there is another picture of Spisska Sobota on my accomodation tip for Penzion Atrium

    Looming in the distance...

    Me & Marek just wandered around Poprad but at every turn, my eyes would be set to the High Mountains looming above Poprad.

    Couldn't really wait till the following day to reach part of it !

    They were still covered in snow ! I love the sight.

    It was looming in the distance. So impressive.

    Take the train from Poprad Tatry station to Stary Smokovec. This is part way up the Tatra mountains. From here you can take a funicular higher. Stary Smokovec is only 13 km from Poprad.
