The Tatras National Park

The Tatras National Park is the oldest national park in Slovakia. It was founded in 1949 and covers a 741-square-kilometer area of the Slovak part of the Zapadne Tatry and Vysoke Tatry (West and High Tatras), also including the entire Belianske Tatras. The boundaries of the Tatras National Park (TANAP), clearly marked on all approach routes, are: the Slovak-Polish border to the north, the Zdiar-Tatranska Kotlina road to the east, a line approximating the forest line to the south, and to the west through the valley Sucha dolina to Biela skala, towards Oravice and through the valley Ticha dolina up to the Polish border. TANAP's charge is to preserve the original condition of the natural environment through comprehensive protection and guidance for the mountains' usage for recreation, therapy and sport. TANAP's administration, the state forestry offices, the Tatras botanical exhibition, research institute and TANAP museum are located in Tatranska Lomnica. The Tatras Mountain Rescue Service, a branch of the state forestry administration, is based in Stary Smokovec. Please visit also Nizke Tatry (The Low Tatras National Park) . The densely forested hills of the Low Tatras (Nizke Tatry) run parallel to the High Tatras.

Netradične - tradičná oslava na Gerlachu

Na tradičnom stretnutí slovenských a poľských goralov na hore Lúčna v Západných Tatrách nikdy nechýba Józef Pitoń. Počas tohtoročnej júnovej omše na jej vrchole sa jeho kamaráti z oboch strán Tatier rozhodli osláviť jeho narodeniny tradičným výstupom na Gerlach. Na tom by ešte nebolo nič zvláštne, keby tie narodeniny neboli už jeho osemdesiate tretie! more

Sloboda pod nákladom

Tí chlapi si vybrali čudnú profesiu. Každý deň, v búrke, víchrici, i hlbokom snehu kráčajú vysoko do hôr s obrovským nákladom na pleciach. Napriek tomu, že v diaľke počuť ekonomickejšiu helikoptéru. Za týmto zdanlivým paradoxom sa skrýva viac - tradícia, remeslo a ľudskosť. Slovensko je jediná európska krajina, kde ešte nosiči vynášajú zásoby na tatranské chaty. Film Sloboda pod nákladom nahliada do ich duší. Odhaľuje poznanie, vzácnu skromnosť i zmysel ich náročnej práce. more

Príbehy ľudí, ktoré sme zabudli čítať

Filmový projekt Príbehy tatranských štítov žne jeden úspech za druhým. Už v lete mala jeho prvá časť na svojom konte vyše desať ocenení z rôznych filmových festivalov. Na jeseň k nim pribudli ceny za druhú časť projektu. V čase, keď sa tento článok dostane k čitateľom, budú dokončené všetky diely – a dokonca aj odvysielané v RTVS. Diváci tak majú šancu spoznať Tatry inak. more


Mišo Sabovčík o prechode tatranského hrebeňa

Mišo Sabovčík o prechode tatranského hrebeňa

Od prvej chvíle čo som okúsil lezenie v Tatrách a prečítal prvý článok o prechode hrebeňa Tatier, som zistil, že to je cesta, ktorou pôjdem. Už ma nebavilo vysedávať pod skalkou a nacvičovať ťažké kroky, aj skialpinizmus ma už prestal baviť, a tak som začal vyhľadávať niečo viac. Niečo, kde je pohoda na poslednom mieste - preliezanie dlhých a náročných línií s ťažkým prístupom, náročných hlavne na psychiku a vytrvalosť, v najlepšom prípade končiacich na vrchole. Hrebeň Západných, Vysokých a Belianskych Tatier je pre mňa to najnáročnejšie, čo som doposiaľ prekonal. Krásna, logická línia dlhá 82 kilometrov s prevýšením 11000 metrov a s približne 130 vrcholmi. more

Tales of The Tatras Peaks VI - Footprints on the Ridge

White spots on the maps fascinated people for ages. We can still search for them in ourselves. Because of this you need to raise your eyes to climb higher and push your frontiers. To conquer the main ridge of the whole Tatras in the winter is a big challenge of technique, physical and psychical conditions. The only one who managed it was Pavol Pochylý in 1978. For the last 35 years, nobody was able to repeat his achievement without any support... more

Tales of The Tatras Peaks IV - Last of the Lasts

Until august 1902 the Ostrý Peak was the last Tatras peak with a man on its top. Even experienced mountain guides called this tough peak "the bloody bastard". Thought Karol Englisch didn´t get appreciation for conquering of the unconquerable. Doubts about his more than 30 first ascents forced him to leave the Tatras. Who remained forever was Christian Kraft von Hohenlohe, the German Prince and the third richest man in Europe, in the period between 19th and 20th century. Without him the Tatras wouldn't look as we know them today. Hohenlohe´s marks remained in "his" animals, principles of nature protection and in folk's memories. Only a little step was necessary to remain a big part of the Tatras to stay in Slovak property. Edmund Téry celebrated his first ascent of Mount Prostredný hrot with a bottle of champagne. Maybe on his descent he came up with an idea of a mountain hut - today´s Téry hut. Prostredný hrot still attract mountaineers. Thanks to its unique slab with a crack in it. Best climbers, photographers and "spiders" couldn´t sleep because of it... more

Tales of the Tatras Peaks III- The Enticed by Heights

A sixteen-year old boy was once standing on the seashore of the Morskie Oko mountain lake; desiring to be the first on the top of the Mengusovský Peak. Was it a longing for appreciation, recognition, or just for conquering the unconquered he was driven by? His achievement has inspired many. Until the 19th century people believed the Lomnicky peak to be the Tatras highest. To conquer it was the boldest dream of the youth from Kežmarok. Who was the first one on its top stays still a mystery. Enticement to be the first on the top of the Lomnický Peak turned into an enticement to conquer its challenging western wall. It attracted two of the best Polish climbers, too. Just a coincidence helped one of them to gain victory. They both, however, paid in the mountains the ultimate price.... more

Tales of The Tatras Peaks II - Dreams of Freedom

The High Tatras, Slovakia's symbol - offer shelter and asylum to all those who seek calm and refuge for their souls... Their inimitable ambience and majesty absorb man in his entirety. Anyone who enters their realm should come with humbleness and reverence. It is a unique environment where dishonesty and pride are not tolerated. They remain stony-faced to those who have come to conquer them. But they reveal a little of their mystery to those who come humbly to learn from them...
