The picturesque Tatras are well-known to those travellers who have ever reached Poland or Slovakia. Here, on the territory of two States Tatra National Park stretches around the mountain range. The park was created in 1949 with an area of 738 square kilometres. Citizens in those countries became aware of the value of the exclusive territories in the 19th century, but their efforts to create a reserve ended in failure back then.
The main feature of the Tatra reserve are deep coniferous forests with a great number of rare species of plants. Silver fir, Siberian pine and European larch grow here. The National park contains numerous fauna species. More than 40 species of mammals and over 110 species of birds dwell in the Tatras. You can see wolves, wild boars, lynxes and bears in the dark forests. The Tatra chamois is a symbol of the park since its foundation.
These amazing animals, a little bit like huge marmots inhabited our planet during Pleistocene period, today they are on the verge of extinction. Those who prefer to enjoy the natural beauty, have an opportunity to see the Kmet’s waterfall or stroll through the miraculously beautiful alpine meadows and climb the mountain peaks. There are also many caves in the park, the most interesting of which is Wielka Sniezna cave located on the territory of Poland. Next - Parque Nacional de Donana
