Stary Smokovec Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 39 photos

Stary Smokovec is one of the resort towns in the High Tatras. Located some 40 km from the Polish border it is easy to reach from Krakow/Zakopane and has good transport connections to Poprad, Zilina and the rest of Slovakia.

While I was there it seemed there were plenty of people out hiking, but the town itself was real quiet at night.

    Nice view from your balcony. I bet the hiking trails were awesome in this area.

    Fantastic page about this gem of the Tatra. Interesting enough only your tip "Lovely photograph of the Tatra" doesn't have a photo. *winkygrin* - We once stayed a few nights in Poprad and explored the Tatra from there by train.

      Fabulous updates since my last visit of your page. Interesting beer tip. I must admit that Polish beer isn't too bad either.
