The Tatra Mountains are a spectacular rock mass, extension of the Carpathians, which forms the natural border between Slovakia and Poland. This is one of the highest massifs of Eastern Europe with peaks over 2,600 meters altitude. The Tatras are divided into two massifs (High and Low Tatras) that constitute the two national parks. These national parks are a great area to enjoy nature while walking, mountain biking or hiking. Not surprisingly they were declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. Among the fauna, we can find protected species such as the brown bear, the wolf and the lynx, specimens that are developed under the protection of forests growing imprenetrables at the base of the mountains and along the many glacial valleys flowing the Váh river valley.
