— winter attractions —
Hrebienok - TATRA TEMPLE OF ICE
- ice temple - ice sculptures as a result of the event Tatry Ice Master
- Admission: free
- Open during the winter season since 2012 until the end of april.
- A comfortable funicular operates to Hrebienok to the Tatra Temple from the station of Starý Smokovec
The journey to the "local Arendelle" icefall only takes an hour from Leharo. The icicles measure up to 14 meters, so when it starts to warm up, you have to be careful - you wouldn't want one to land on your head.
The walk from Matejovce nad Hornádom takes less than half an hour, which is ideal for small children or sledges. The route is not marked, but you have nowhere to get lost, (Google might help).
Snow Betlehem - Rainerova chata
Only half an hour walk from Hrebienok - one of the winter "must-sees".
Betlehem is made by the "house-master" of the oldest and smallest Tatra-mountain hut so called "Rainerka". Before the winter hits, he prepars the wooden "frame" into which he moves all the snow from around the hut. (It sometimes reaches 4 meters in height.)
it is in operation from about the New-Years until Easter when the Betlehem turns to an Easter egg made out of snow.
It all depends on how the nature cooperates and how long the winter lasts.
Christmas lightings in Poprad
One of the most beautifully decorated towns in Slovakia. It is usually lit-up from St. Nicholas until the end of January.
The Christmas period in Poprad is also rich in various cultural programs, fairs, etc.
Definitely worth visiting!
