The High Tatras - Self-guided Tour

Hi Lenka

We had a great trip. Thank you for the good information. The days we had some bad weather were ideal for the cave visit + town visit. The hikes were very nice as well. Bilikova chata was nice as well but we have some remarks there:

- food: very basic and repetitive. I know we cannot expect the level of food from a 4* hotel but a little more variation would be welcome. (every day the same vegetables + breakfast)
- English: it's really staggering that nobody really speaks English well. We only found 1 person in the hotel that understood us more or less. The other ones didn't really bother. Also the general feeling of Slovakian people is also not very good. People are in general not very friendly (or just don't' look very friendly)

Again thank you very much for the great communication. I'll recommend travelslovakia to my friends

Regards

Thomas

High Tatras - Self-guided Tour

Alena,
This was our first visit to Central Europe. It was great having an English-speaking agent meet us at the train, personally drive us to the resort in the mountains, provide us with maps and daily itineraries (which we ignored when we just wanted to sleep in) and later return us to the station at the end of our stay. We met a friendly staff at the resort. For a cost that was less than a dingy hotel room in Western Europe, we daily enjoyed a 2-floor, ski-resort apartment, ate a hearty breakfast, received a voluminous packed lunch - packed so that we could eat lunch on the forest trails when and where we wished in some of the most beautiful wilderness in the world, and a scrumptious supper each evening. Our Canadian home is 1 hour's drive from Banff, Canada, reputedly the most beautiful wilderness area in the world, but we absolutely loved the High Tatras Mountains with its undulating trails and many splashing water falls. The quietness and quaintness of the resort allowed us to completely unwind from our normally very hectic life. We happily encourage North Americans and Europeans to consider spending a week in the High Tatras mountains before the rest of the world discovers this gem of Central Europe.
