This church in late gotic style was built by two prothestant churches under the supervision of the Duchees Katinka and Jolan Pejascevich in 1902. It's for the praise of the holy trinity and the glory of god.
This I haven't tested myself but it was good fun to watch it. One ride costs 50 SKK. If it's too fast for you, you can break to your liking but it never goes faster than 40 kmh.
Open all year round from 9 am till 6 pm and in peak season till 9 pm.
Cable Car to Skalnate Pleso and Lomnicky Stit
The cable car from Tatranska Lomnica offers a quick, though expensive, route to top of the Tatras. After arriving in Lomnica in the afternoon we decided to take the cable car up the mountains to give us a quick introduction to the Tatras before our big planned hike the following day.
We spent ages looking for the entrance as our out-of-date Lonely Planet guide had indicated the old station, near the Grand Hotel, which was no longer in use. The new entrance is west of the town about 10 minutes walk from the train station. Just follow the cable car signs.
It costs 390 SKK for a return ticket to Skalnate Pleso, a lakeside chaty at 1725 feet. There is another cable car from here to the summit of Lomnicky Stit, one of the highest peaks in the Tatras at 2634. Thus costs a further 550 SKK for a return. Alternatively, you can take a chairlift form Skalnate Pleso to Lomnicke Sedlo, a saddle point below the summit (2190).
There are great views of Lomnica on the climb up though before we even got to Skalnate Pleso the clouds were all around us and we couldn't see very much. This put us off making the climb to the very top of Lomnicky Stit so we explored the trails around Skalnate Pleso instead.
The lake is in a lovely setting with Lomnicky Stit providing a great backdrop for photos - though it was almost all clouds in the background for our visit. We walked along the blue trail to the east of the lake for about 45 minutes before turning back. There was so much cloud that we couldn't really see much at all. I can only imagine how nice the views are on a clear day.
dramatic cable car
The cable car ride up is very dramatic. considering the relative height of the Tatras compared to the alps - it is quite unexpected.
It does seem to be a very popular trip out in the summer (used to skiing for the winter) but the main crush was in the morning with with trekking types and in the afternoon with day-trippers.
Around Lunchtime therefore
it is a little quieter : it worked for us.
Enjoy the view.

Roman Catholic church
This church is just a short way downhill from the other one. I couldn't find any information on this one.
There are several hiking paths in the Tatranska Lomnica area. Some are steep uphill but there are others. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time to test any of them.

View the ski-jump place
Tatranska Lomnice has two ski-jumps. I have no idea whether they are still in use in winter but you can walk up to them. Or you can see them from the garden of Grand Hotel Praha in the distance.
