Poprad – to hike and remember
by Dino D - 2 years, 11 months ago
A city I've previously never heard of, prior to my visit of a friend I made some time before that. She promised to take us on a hike and she delivered. We went firstly with a train to High Tatra Mountains (Slovakia's one of three most famous mountain chains, portrayed on their national emblem, as well), only to continue our several hours long hike to one of the common stops.
It's an understatement to say that I was amazed by the nature you encounter that – the calamity and peacefulness one can find there (along with some wild squirrels) is purely breathtaking. When we'd reached our destination it was easy to wish to go even further up! But the rain decided instead of us and we started our way down – visiting a „graveyard“ of all the people that were reported missing or dead on the mountain, before taking a train ride back to Poprad.
