Travel Guide to Poprad, Slovakia

It’s a famous ski resort situated at the foot of the High Tatras. The first mention of the city is referred to the middle of the 13th century, but at that time Poprad wasn’t yet a large settlement. It was a group of small villages, which were combined and gradually achieved the status of the city. Nowadays the territory of the city is conventionally divided into three separate settlements: Spisska Sobota, Matejovce, and Wielka.
This city has become a favorite place for athletes as the region has excellent conditions for skiing. The routes run through picturesque woods and their level of difficulty varies depending on the initial training of sportsmen. No so long ago here have been opened several ski schools for children that are run by highly qualified coaches. A training camp for adults is located nearby. Professionals will definitely enjoy several so-called "black slopes" with high level of complexity; there are also areas for snowboarders. Elevators located near every major hotel deliver guests to the beginning of the ski routes.
In addition to skiing activities tourists have an opportunity to relax in one of the local restaurants or cafes, which are numerous in hotels and near ski bases. The city’s suburbs are truly remarkable and picturesque. There are many forests there which are considered protected areas. The northern part of city is the location of Tatra National Park. Move your feet to the southern part of the city and you will find another large park named Slovak Paradise. Rich greenery, picturesque cliffs and gorges - this is a truly pristine piece of nature.
When it comes to describing the historical sites of Poprad, we recommend making a tour of the Kežmarok district. Here you will find an ancient palace and a lovely wooden church. Both buildings are made in best traditions of the Gothic style. In this city you can also visit numerous museums, galleries and cinemas, as well as make a walk to the shops and shopping centers.
