Strbske Pleso Things to Do

  • Walk around the lake

    Pleso means lake. There is a plesant path around the lake. Towards the mountains you will see the ski jumping places. If you walk a bit more towards the mountains from the back of the lake you will reach a chair lift which takes you up part of a mountain.More or less opposite the railway station there is a tourist information office.

    When you enter this restaurant you think you are in a typical old Slovak house on the mountains! The service is excellent & it is also reasonably priced! I had a great meal there with my girlfriend & her parents....cannot complain :-) Goulash

    The barbecue meat is cooked in front of you. Its a very busy, hectic, touristy place with Romany music (live) The meals were about average but the atmosphere made it worth the cost.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Unfortunately last year in the Slovak Republic there was a big catastrophy on the High Tatras. An uncountable number of trees were destroyed & unfortunately this paradise will never be as it was before.......While walking you should be careful about trees like this one in the photo!

    cross country skiing

    by carolynllew Written Feb 6, 2005

    The ski season starts early. There are 4 lifts for downhill skiing and snowboarding for beginners or intermediate and good cross-country trails.
    Ski hire costs only 240 SK per day
    Sled hire 60SK per day

    Equipment: You can hire skis close to the lift ticket booth, then you don't need to carry them far and you can leave them under Hotel FIS at night for a small fee (I think it was 10SK)
