The centre of tourism will be in the captivity of ice soon and its cold heart will be changed to a unique piece of art by the hands of skilled sculptors. This year, the topic of the unique creation is “Gothic style” with elements of altar stained glass. The overall magical atmosphere will be emphasised by tones of classical music.  

Besides popular events and attractions such as Tatry Ice Master, Snow Dogs, snowmen in Skalnaté Pleso, Audi Ski arena with slalom timekeeping, sledging in Hrebienok and the Sky of Stars dinner, visitors and skiers can also enjoy Fresh Track.
