History
The resort of the imperial court
Already at the end of the 19th century, the Augusta villa with Štrbské pleso grew up with 38 rooms and served as a resort for the imperial court. Later it was renamed to Jiskra and after 1945 with the modification of the facade it was renamed to Solisko - at that time already serving as a children's hospital. In 1994, the hospital was demolished and within three years, a new Solisko hospital with simpler shapes was built. Since 2011, with its internal modifications, it has been offering its services as the Solisko **** hotel, with an orientation towards families with children and, in fact, to everyone who likes the Tatras at their fingertips.
