The High Tatras, the highest mountain range in Slovakia with a long tradition of tourism, is the area of the oldest national park. The uniqueness of the High Tatras, the smallest high mountains in the world, is primarily the great differences in altitude and the beautiful scenery and views reminiscent of the panoramas of the Italian Dolomites. The development of tourism in the settlements around Štrbské pleso, in Stary Smokovec and Tatranská Lomnica, and consequently the establishment of the first ski resorts goes back more than 100 years. Tatra settlements have been attracting visitors for years with their climate and more than a century of tradition.

The Black Stork golf course in Veľká Lomnica is famous for its unique location on the south side, in the protective range of the Tatra National Park.
Unspoiled nature, rocky massifs and fresh air – these are the assets found on 120 acres of land in a beautiful setting. Black Stork Golf Course with the prestigious A PGA Golf Course brand is one of 19 golf courses in the world to hold this seal of approval.
Adventure Golf came to us from North America, where it is one of the most popular recreational and professional sports. Played on artificial golf turf with golf putters or small golf mallets and a golf ball, it is very reminiscent of the traditional type of golf everyone is familiar with. It develops concentration, patience, motor skills, and promotes competition. Excitement awaits you during the game, as well as lots of fun.
In the High Tatras, fantasy, adventure and adrenaline have no limits. You can feel the adrenaline rush by doing various sports on the ground, in the air, in the water, but also underground.

You want to admire the views but are not an amateur mountain climber? Nothing lost! Tatra cable cars are a good way to make your stay in the Tatras more enjoyable and get to know these mountains from a completely different side! Worth recommending is m.In ground railroad, which runs from Stary Smokovec station (1017 m n.p.m.) to Hrebienok (1272 m n.p.m.), a starting point for excursions to waterfalls and Tatra huts. There you will also find the opportunity to spend time actively – bike park and tubing. The train ride to Hrebienok alone takes just 7 minutes!
As part of the Tatra Mountains without Barriers project, people with disabilities can enjoy eight hiking trails with a length of more than thirty kilometers. These routes will also work well for families with toddlers, who will enjoy the High Tatras in their strollers. An initiative worth appreciating and testing!
