The East Slovakia region
The High Tatras national park is the most beautiful in Slovakia. The High Tatras became the country’s first national park in 1948 and includes the mountain chains of Belianske Tatry and Západné Tatry (Western Tatras), their length of 55 km making them one of the smallest mountain ranges of alpine character in Europe.
The High Tatras national park has an area of 73,800 ha., with 30,703 ha forming a buffer zone, and penetrates into the districts of Liptovský Mikuláš, Poprad, Kežmarok and Tvrdošín. The highest summit of the High Tatras, and of the whole Carpathians, is Mt. Gerlachovský štít, at 2655 m. whilst the symbolic national peak of Slovakia, also located in this national park, is Mt. Kriván 2495 m. high.
Almost two thirds of the national park are covered by forests, prevailingly spruce and fir-spruce. The dominant tree species is the spruce with a significant occurrence of Scots pine, Swiss pine, larch, and Swiss mountain pine. Deciduous forests – beech and maple growths - occur less frequently and mainly in the Belianske Tatry.
The High Tatras are mostly granite, the Western Tatras mostly of crystalline slates and the Belianske Tatry mostly limestone. There are 110 lakes, or mountain tarns in the park, which have been formed in glacial kettles. The deepest tarn is Velké Hincovo pleso, with a maximum depth of 54 m.
From among the park’s many waterfalls, the biggest is Kmetov waterfall, 80 m high. In the High Tatras area there are many karst formations, though the only cave accessible to the public here is Belianska jaskyna (1750 m long) with its fascinating stalactite-stalagmite decoration.
