The Low Tatras - Nizke Tatry
The continuous mountain ridge of the original configuration between the upper basins of the rivers Vah and Hron, approximately 80 km long, with exquisite valleys both in the north and south - those are the Low Tatras. Their ridges are very diverse and offer marvelous views on the environments as well as on the High Tatras panorama.
The mountains have ideal conditions for both summer and winter tourism. Magnificent ski terrains, tows, lifts and comfortable hotels make the Low Tatras one of the most attractive tourist centers in Slovakia. In the upper part of the valley Demanovska dolina the up-to-date tourist and ski center of the European standard - Jasna - was built. According to the number of tremendous ski tracks, ski tows and lifts it is on the first place in Slovakia. Good snow conditions until the late spring enable sunny spring skiing.
