Overview

HIKING IN THE HIGH TATRAS

The National Park of High Tatras was established as the first of its kind in Slovakia. The High Tatras constitute the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 1993. The TANAP contains mountain and high-mountain plants such as dwarf pine, pine woods and a wonderful flora. Rare animal species such as the eagle, bear, or marmot live here as well. The chamois is the symbol of Tatras. It is one of the most precious species, as it developed in isolation since the glacial age. This is the reason why it differs from its relatives living in the Alps or Apennines. Its protection is extremely strict because only 300 animals survive at present.
The High Tatras region offers unusually rich spectrum of the architectural monuments, climatic spas and non-mountain natural beauties.
