"The present strict rocky beauty of the Tatras peaks and valleys was shaped in the dramatic mountain - forming processes during the later Tertiary, it means five to twenty millions years ago," writes in the Invitation to the High Tatras publicista Fedor Mikovic.
"During these millennia the glaciers had been shaping valleys with rocky moraines and thresholds which blocked waters of mountain streams and brooks producing numerous lakes – the true germs of the Tatras nature. In the High Tatras, in the Slovak territory, there are 110 such lakes, another 16 lakes are in the Polish territory," writes Mikovic.
