Tatra Mountains in detail


Goral (highlander) restaurants, preparing sheep’s cheese and meaty soups, provide ample fuel for Tatra Mountains hikes. Equally plentiful in Poprad and the Smokovec towns are pizzerias, bakeries and fast-food places, excellent value if not always inspiring. If travelling outside high season, pensions with half-board and guesthouses with attached restaurants, found even in small villages, are the most reliable places for a bite. Poprad and Štrbské Pleso have the best restaurants.
