The magic of Lomnické sedlo (saddle) will be open and can be discovered again after 14th June. Lomnické sedlo is the most attractive highest located slope in winter and an interesting destination offering a beautiful view and a nice journey with a 2-seater chairlift to the altitude of 2,196 m in summer. This unique place has always attracted lovers of endless views of the deep valley of Malá Studená dolina, Mt. Slavkovský štít or the basin of Popradská kotlina. And it even inspired film makers. For families with children, Lomnické sedlo is one of 7 adventures of the Tatra Wilderness– an entertaining educational project. There will be 2 adventures added to new stories of Tatra animals this summer. Children will meet their Tatra friends also on the main tourist trail of the Tatras, on the way to the Waterfalls of Studený potok (brook). And this will be the second summer that visitors can admire works of young artist at Skalnaté pleso and enjoy a non-traditional view of the popular tarn – from an observation tower.
Friday 13th June will be the day when the summer tourist season in the High Tatras will be officially opened and the surface of the tarn at Štrbské Pleso will be “unlocked” like every year before. Popular boating on the tarn of Štrbské pleso will be free of charge from 9:00 to 12:00.
