The Tatras, the smallest high mountains in the world with lots of natural beauty and unique features, themselves hide a magical place - Podbanské.
This small mountain resort is situated between the two highest Slovak mountain ranges – the High and Western Tatras. Close by are the mouths of three Tatra valleys - Kamenistá, Tichá and Kôprová. The area is bordered by two major mountains – Mount Bystrá (2248 m asl), which is the highest peak in the Western Tatras and the majestic High Tatra Mount Kriváň(2494 m asl) which is considered a symbol of Slovak national pride. The impressive scenery of the natural environment is enhanced by Slovakia’s cleanest river, and the only one with white-water rafting, the River Bela.
