Tatranska Lomnica Things to Do

  • Evangelic church

    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.

  • Tatry bob

    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.

  • Roman Catholic church

    This church is just a short way downhill from the other one. I couldn't find any information on this one.

  • Hiking

    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.

  • Cable Car to Skalnate Pleso and Lomnicky...

    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 We spent ages looking for the entrance as our out-of-date Lonely...

Tatranska Lomnica Restaurants

  • Local food

    We only wanted to have a snack, so we ended up at the outside sitting area of the railway station restaurant. The service was a bit slow, ie I had to go inside to order. The place is also very popular with the locals and the menu is in English and German too.For the toilet you have to ask for a token at the buffet and go to the separate building to...

  • Restauracia Gazdovskaizba

    On our last night in Lomnica we wanted to try somewhere different from our Penzion so we went looking for a restaurant in the town. For such a small town there was a reasonably good choice of places ot eat, most in or around the train station. Our first choice was the place beside the supermarket but there was a 30 minute wait here for a table. We...

  • Penzion Encian

    Our penzion had been recommended as a good spot to eat so we tried on our first night in Lomnica. Prices on the menu were great, Budwar was on tap and there was a lovely fire in the corner (even though it was August) which made for a very cosy atmosphere. The only problem was the quantity of the food. While my chicken breast and Ruth's pork...

Tatranska Lomnica Transportation

  • By gondola to Skaluate Pleso and further

    If the big ropway behind the Grand Hotel Praha is not running then you may consider taking the gondola up to Skaluate Pleso, where you can change to another ropeway which takes up on top of the mountain. Since we travelled pre-season we were not able to take this trip as the gondolas/ropeways were closed until the beginning of June for maintenance.

    more
  • By bus

    If there is no train running when you want to travel you may want to check the bus timetable at the nearby bus station. We took the bus back to Poprad which cost 25 SKK compared to 30 SKK by Tatra train. The bus is very quick and part of the downhill journey from Stary Smokovec was a straight road which is quite impressive when you sit in the...

  • By diesel train

    From/to Poprad there is another option. You can take the diesel train to Studeny Potok in the lowland and from there a local train either to Poprad or to Kezmarok.

    There is a large supermarket behind the train station which is open every day from 7am to 9pm. This is a good place for assembling picnics for hiking in the Tatras. There aren't too many places in the park to buy food so it makes sense to stock up beforehand.

    This very old cable car seems to be out of operation since the big storm or so. I'm talking about the one that starts behind the Grand Hotel Praha. There are new gondolas see under transportation tips.

    Miscellaneous: Most visitors to Tatranska Lomnica will be planning to hike in the High Tatras. The weather can change quickly in the Tatras, especially at the higher points, where it can be very cold and it may rain frequently. My advice is to prepare yourself for all conditions. Bring rain gear and lots of layers of clothing which you can remove in warmer conditions.

    Also, a good map of the Tatras is essential. You can buy a hiking map in the tourist office for 109 SKK.

Tatranska Lomnica Off The Beaten Path

    Sometime when you think that you lose your day because of bad weather for skiing, you win in fact. Long walk around will show you a lot of nice buildings and houses. Here are few...

  • Walk from Stary Smokovec to Tatranska...

    We walked this stretch because we would have had to wait a fair while for the next train. There is a footpath following the main road but it's usually separated and a few meters off the road. You can see a small stream and some flowers along the way.

  • Sightseeing in Tatranska Lomnica

    There's not too much to see in Tatranska Lomnica as it's really only a base for exploring the Tatras. While we were trying to find the cable car we did see a bit of the town and passed a couple of interesting places like the church in the photo. There is also a museum of the tatras near the bus station which could be worth visiting if it's too wet...

    Tatranska Lomnica is an excellent base for hiking in the High Tatras. It's a short walk from the town to three trails - a green trail to Skalnate Pleso, a blue trail to the Studena Dolina valley above Hrebienok and a yellow trail to the east. We took the blue trail on our second day and did a 2 hour hike through the woods to the Studena Dolina. This is a fairly easy trail though there wasn't too much to see near the start. There is more information on this hike on my Vysoke Tatry page...

Tatranska Lomnica Favorites

  • Grand Hotel Praha

    You cannot overlook this imposing structure. Because part of the garden area was under reconstruction we were able to enter and enjoy the view. This hotel is frequented by foreign tour groups too. They have a separate building with wellness.

  • Forest devastation

    In 2004 there was a huge storm that flattened most trees in the High Tatry. Wide areas still look very bare with knocked over trees. There is still a lot of work to be done. It looks not very appealing but it shouldn't stop you from visiting.

    more
  • Map

    There is a tourist office in Tatranska Lomnica on the main road. It was closed when we were there. But if you plan to hike I suggest you buy a hiking map in the information office or a souvenir shop. There is a town map hanging near the railway station.
