|National park HIGH TATRAS|
|Welcome to the Tatras National Park,
the oldest national park in Slovakia. It was founded in 1949 and covers a 741-square-kilometer area of the Slovak part of the West and High Tatras, also including the entire Belianske Tatras.
The boundaries of the Tatras National Park (TANAP), clearly marked on all approach routes, are: the Slovak-Polish border to the north, the Zdiar-Tatranska Kotlina road to the east, a line approximating the forest line to the south, and to the west through the valley Sucha dolina to Biela skala, towards Oravice and through the valley Ticha dolina up to the Polish border.
TANAP s charge is to preserve the original condition of the natural environment through comprehensive protection and guidance for the mountains usage for recreation, therapy and sport.
Welcome to the High Tatras - Vysoke Tatry, an area whose natural beauty makes it one of the most remarkable recreation areas not only in Slovakia but in all of Europe. Among other things, the High Tatras offer exceptionally clean air and a unique climate, leaving every visitor feeling better, especially those who take advantage of the many health spa treatments available.
Hiking paths, ranging from gentle to highly demanding, wind among spectacular peaks and rock walls.

TANAP s administration, the state forestry offices, the Tatras botanical exhibition, research institute and TANAP museum are located in Tatranska Lomnica. The Tatras Mountain Rescue Service, a branch of the state forestry administration, is based in Stary Smokovec.
Hiking in the High Tatra mountains, once an activity of high adventurers alone, is now a sport enjoyed by all who love the outdoors.
This is in part thanks to the long history of distinguished service offered by the High Tatras mountain hotels (offering complete hotel services year round) and chalets (which provide more rustic lodging services for hikers, in most cases year round).
