The oldest of the Slovak protected areas, the National Park of Tatras, was founded in 1949. It is situated in the North of Slovakia, shared partly with Poland. High Tatras (Vysoké Tatry), having 29 peaks over 2,500 metres (8,200 ft) are, with the Southern Carpathians, the only mountains of Alpine type in the whole Carpathian Mountain range and are often called “the smallest alpine mountains in Europe”. The highest peak in the High Tatras is Gerlachovský štít at 2,655 metres (8.710 ft).
The Tatras mountain region is a green natural playground with a charming variety of nature, history and attractions in a small, accessible, safe territory. This outdoor paradise offers pristine natural environment and maximum relaxation in the embrace of the mountains, waterfalls, alpine meadows and more than 100 lakes. The trails that crisscross the High Tatras are all well marked with distances and estimated times, so it is easy to choose route based on everyone´s fitness level and ambition.
The High Tatras topped Lonely Planet’s Best in Europe list for 2019, which highlights the most exciting places to visit across the continent.
