Bratislava to High Tatras

If you like winter and mountains, there is no better place for you in Slovakia than High Tatra Mountains (Vysoke Tatry). These mountains include the highest peaks of Carpathian mountain range and are situated in the north of Slovakia at the border with Poland. It is about 300km away from Bratislava and you get there by IC trains or via highway in approximately 3-4 hours.

Winter Activities

High Tatra Mountains offer many possibilities for free time activities in winter.

High Tatra Mountains developed a good infrastructure for skiing and snowboarding with over 45km of slopes. They offer stunning views. Slopes are serviced by the newest winter cable cars set up in recent years.

The season usually starts at the end of November and ends in April. There are two main ski resorts - one in Strbske Pleso and the other one in Tatranska Lomnica. It is very easy to rent skies or snowboard on the slopes or in most of the ski shops in the city. The price of daily tickets in High Tatras is around 30€ each and less when you buy a skipass. 

Cross-country skiing is also very popular in winter. Tracks have a total length of 80 kilometres. Most of them are situated in Strbske Pleso resort (25km). They get upkept everyday.

After a long day, you can visit Aqua City Poprad, Aquapark Tatralandia, Gino Paradise Bešeňová, Thermal Park Vrbov or other places. Most of the good hotels offer excellent wellness capabilities.

Hi adnan,

Uber is meant as a Bratislava transport, Piestany are quite far away from here. But you are willing to go by uber, the estimate is around 40 euro (for comparison it would cost you around 5 euro if you take train/bus).

best wishes,

We are six adults and a kid of 7 years old, and would like to travel from vienna airport on the 21st december to high tatras. We do not know the hotel name yet in high tatras. Then we will travel back from high tatras to a hotel in vienna center on the 24th december. Could you please give us a quote for the transfers.

Hi tony.psaila,

I would recommend :

1. get to Bratislava by bus (direct connection)

2. get from Bratislava central bus station to Bratislava train station (public transport number 21 or 210)

3. take train to High Tatras (you might have to change once depending on yours hotel location. Usually you have to get to Poprad and then change for some local train)
