High Tatras are rich of amazing mountain lakes. One of them Popradské pleso can be a destination of easy hiking or a basic point for more exacting hiking or climbing.
We decided reach this beautiful place from Strbske pleso by a red line hiking path. Less than 1 and 1/2 hour spent by walking in coniferous forest is especially pleasant in hot Summer days.
In the main point of the hike tourists can refresh themself in a restaurant.
For the way down to the Popradske pleso railway station by the blue line I can recommend to turn to the short yellow line and vist The symbolic cemetery dedicated to victims of mountains.
The electric train from Popradske pleso station takes you back to Strbske pleso or to another destination.

Lomnicky stit is the second highest peak in Slovakia. Amazing view from the top is the main reason why to go there. You can book an accomodation too http://www.vt.sk/accommodation/night-on-lomnicky-peak/en/winter/. If you are lucky, you can watch Northern Lights from this place too.
You can get there by a few ways: hike or by an aerial tramway to Sklanate pleso and then go by another aerial tram or climbing with a guide to the top of Lomnicky stit.
You have to buy the ticket form Skalnate pleso to Lomnicky stit in advance.

You absolutely mustn't miss it. Not many places offer such great views of the High Tatras without the necessity of any exhausting hiking. Here you can come in your car if you want. The day the picture was taken was a cloudy one so you can see only the Belianske Tatras with the mountain you probably recognise by now - yes, it's Muran mentioned in my other tips. On a clear day you can see even as far as L'adovy Stit. A wonderful spot and easily accessible.

This is an absolute must-see if you are visiting Javorina. Standing on a hill just above the village there is a wooden manor house with hunting motifs built by Prince Kristian Kraft Hohenlohe, who became the lord of this estate in 1879 with the intention to live and hold his hunting parties there. To make them more interesting, he even imported some bisons, alpine ibexes and Caucasian deer, but they could not adapt to the new conditions so his project fell through. He sold his manor and land to the state in 1936 and since then the house, which the local people call a palace, has been used by Slovakian statesmen and other celebrities for representative and entertainment purposes. But most of the time it stands empty with just a caretaker living in it and is well-worth visiting for the wonderful views of the Tatras that it offers. We would often sit on its steps, with the wooden stag heads on the walls above us, watching the sunset. But when we arrived there this year we found a notice forbidding access to the manor. We did find a way though to see the view again without coming close to the house, where they have now installed CCTV cameras.

just a really good tip for everyone who likes and plays golf or just look for higher standard of place to stay! A really nice golf course BLACK STORK(18 holes; 27 is planned this year) is located just few km from Vysoke Tatry, about 5km from the city of Poprad (where aquapark is located:www.aquacityresort.com), in Velka Lomnica.
Beautiful scenery, high quality services (4star Hotel International, sauna, whirpool etc) and professional golf course!

Zapadne Tatry is a a mountain range a bit west of Vysoke Tatry. That's actually their name, "zapadne" means west. They are worth the visit if you like hiking as there are many beautiful treks there, most of them harder than the ones in Vysoke Tatry and with outstanding views. Just get a map and get hiking. Some of the best routes are a tour around the lakes (an easy trek), trek to Ostry Rohac or Banikov (both quite hard tours with chains on the top of the mountains to aid you up). You can stay in Zuberec or Habovka. Zuberec is a nice small village with typical wooden houses. From the other side you can stay in Liptovsky Mikulas, a town with an aquapark.

Do this on a nice weather day wtihout clouds for an amazing view. The cable car leaves from Tatranska Lomnica and takes you up to Skalnate pleso where you have to change the cable car ad this one will take you steeply up to Lomnicky stit.

The aquacity in Poprad is a good idea if you want to take a rest after hiking or skiing in the mountains. They have 2 hot outdoor pools, another one indoor with jacuzzis, a big indoor swimming pool and a spa world with saunas and other attractions, also water slides for kids.
