  • We visited this place just after the Easter weekend and the place was very quite.Weather was still very cold and although the lake was completely frozen it still afforded a wonderful natutal spectacle...  more »
  • There are several options to reach this location: Besides the road that climbs from Strba a rack train (15 minutes, a ride every two hours about), otherwise from Poprad-Tatry station Another train a little more modern (1h 10 minutes, one run every hour). The train rides are free if you own the Tatry Card, otherwise they have a minimum cost anyway. The lake is picturesque, a pity just a few palazzone and the trampolines that contaminated a little ' view; Nearby several places, souvenir shops and a tourist office open with continuity (very kind the girl at the counter). I was in the off-season-mid-April Monday, with the ski slopes closed-but there were still so many people, also complicit in the sunny day; In July and August I guess it might be a bit crowded. The lake is frozen on average five months a year, the trail that runs along is just over 2 km long.
