Spišská Nová Ves - ZOO

It is the youngest and smallest among all the ZOO´s in Slovakia, nevertheless it is very beautiful.  

There are approximately 250 animals and 70 species, some stalls with refreshments, ice-cream and souvenirs, two playgrounds for children and other attractions.

Though it is not a whole-day trip, it is a nice change from the mountain holidays and guarantees success among the children. It is very nice to combine this day-out with a stop e.g. in the Slovak Paradise or at the Spiš Castle (see above).

Historical trains

Every weekend during the summer holidays, historic trams run through the Tatras and you can take a ride on them. The ride is an experience itself. For example, the 100-year-old Comet does not even have a glass in the windows, so new hairstyle is included in the ticket-price  :)

Our friend Erik has been accompanying curious tourists near bear dwellings for years and he certainly knows all Tatra bears by name. Undoubtedly they know him too. He can introduce you to them too if you want. He will take you to places where they roam, of course, in all "abundance" from a safe distance. Are you going?

From May to October, bears are observed either individually or in groups of 2-8 people. (the more you are, the better the price :). The "trip" is not suitable for small children, as the climb takes several hours.

If you are interested, let us know, we will be happy to arrange contact with Erik for you.
