Tourists pay for stumbling into Poland

SIX Danish tourists were fined Sk4,000 (€95) over an unintended illegal crossing of the Slovak-Polish border during a hiking trip in the High Tatras.

Four adults and two children were strolling in the country's highest mountain range in the north of the country near the Pobanské area, close to the Slovak-Polish border.

According to the state run TASR news agency Polish officers stopped the tourists, not named, around 250 meters off the Slovak border and send them back to the Slovak part of the mountains.
