Tourists can now take home an untraditional souvenir from the High Tatras – Tatra air in a can. The Poprad-based canning factory Tatrakon, especially known for its legendary spaghetti sauce Morca-Della, has just come up with this idea.

“It is not a complete novelty as similar products are being sold in other countries,” said representatives of Tatrakon as cited by the SITA newswire. “But we have nothing like this here, in the High Tatras.”

One, 400-millilitre can contains 80 percent Tatra oxygen, 10 percent grazing sheep, 5 percent is the energy of a drop of morning dew, 3 percent is the atmosphere of a walk in a coniferous forest and 2 percent is the beams of the sun ascending beyond Tatra’s mountains.

The company is reporting a high interest in this souvenir costing €1.50, while the interest of people has surprised them.

“We have to admit that we did not expect such an interest in the Tatra air,” the company told fici.sk website. “Nevertheless, we are very glad that people really want this funny souvenir.”

Those interested can buy cans with Tatra air either in the Tatras or via the Tatrakon e-shop.
