Tatra National Park

Tatra Mountains can be considered as one of the most wild part of Carpathian Mountains. The mountains are located in the northern corner of Slovakia (at the border with Poland). This area is homeland for many rare and endangered species and also host the largest fragment of Wilderness in Tatra National Park, Slovakia.

American photographer Jim O’Donnell visited this area and we can read and learn from his impression:

    Yes, Tatra Mountains are heavily impacted by mass tourism and forestry already for decades… Nevertheless, fragments of land in size of thousands of hectares, with very limited or any impact of humans activities are still there…

    I am sorry, but considering Tatra Mountains as one of the most wild parts of the Carpathians must be a joke. Annually there are over 3 million visitors and 6 mountain hotels only at the Polish side, a number of very active rock climbers, a dense network of marked tourist trails, a number of ski slopes and routes, two cable cars and their upper stations with restaurants at the main ridge. And all this within the area of about 715 sq, km!
