Using Tatra trains is cheap and very convenient. In the train there are announcements not only in Slovak language but in German and English as well. The trains are Swiss built. You need to punch your ticket in the machine when coming on board.

From Stary Smokovec you can either travel down to Poprad or to either side along the base of the mountains to Strbske Pleso or Tatranska Lomnica.

If there is construction work going on then you have to get on a bus. This is only announced in Slovak though. We were the last ones to get off the train. All we understood was "bus", so we followed everyone else.

Mode: TO
Type: Train
