  • Perhaps we were very unlucky, but everything was in the fog, the visibility was minimal, there was a hail. In the tenth days of May the snow was ankle-deep, but the snow was wet, heavy. The altitude is impressive, the mountains are very beautiful, but with the weather you have to guess. The friends were a day later-showed great photos)

  • Beautifully situated lake, whose south front is occupied by a huge Kempinski Hotel. In fine weather, beautiful views of the mountains of the High Tatras.
