Places to Stay

Throughout the Tatras there are scattered 'Chatas' or Chalets. These mountain chalets are an excellent way to experience the Tatra mountains. A well developed system of trails links the chalets with each other. If you're on the Slovakian side of the mountain range, you might want to take the funicular car from Starý Smokovec up to the first Chata. From there you can follow the trails up into the mountains. Every so often you'll come across a chata, where you can buy food, warm up over a cup of coffee, or even stay the night if there are any vacant beds. It's a good idea to bring along a map of the tatras.
