A well-known travel guide ranked our mountains ahead of Madrid or the Icelandic Arctic coast. Tatras will present Lonely Planet.
On Tuesday, May 21, 2019, Lonely Planet's General Manager for Central Europe, Joe Reville, presented the Best in Europe 2019 award at Lomnický štít.
It was taken over by the head of the High Tatras Eugen Knotek and the chairman of the board of the Regional Tourism Organization for the High Tatras region Michal Sýkora.
Lonely Planet has its travelers around the world. Their goal is to show readers the most interesting and attractive destinations from around the world.
"The winner of this year's section is special for us, which is why we came here. The High Tatras are becoming our top destination in Europe for the summer of 2019 . They have amazing nature, beautiful views, beautiful wilderness. We are especially impressed by the bears, which are already almost extinct in the rest of the world, and amazing hiking trails that are not so well known, "said Joe Reville.
Lonely Planet called the High Tatras a paradise for adventurers and a mythical landscape. He appreciates the hospitality at the alpine huts, the possibility of boating at Štrbské pleso or wildlife observation, which is offered by some experiential travel agencies.
