Ski Museum

High Tatras

If you want to marvel at antique bobsleds or learn the art of Siberian animal-skin skis, this private museum illustrates the history of snow sports in an engaging, modern space. The adjoining cafe, with its mouthwatering choice of hot chocolates, is an equally good reason to visit.

It's one block from the train station, on the main road.
