Slovakia’s Tatra Mountains have appeared on the list of 52 places to go in 2019, compiled by the New York Times daily. They even placed among top 20 destinations, occupying the 19th position.
“While most visitors focus on Slovakia’s capital, Bratislava, the soaring Tatra Mountains have emerged as an under-the-radar destination for skiing and outdoors activities, with new gondolas at the Bachledka and Jasná ski areas; slopes planned at Mlynická Dolina; and new chair lifts at Oravská Lesná in the nearby Fatra range to the northwest,” the daily wrote.
Apart from winter sports, the daily mentions that there are excellent hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking and fly-fishing possibilities.
In addition, the daily recommends a visit to Košice, which “offers colourful street art and plenty of cafes and restaurants, thanks to its three universities and associated night life”.
“Plan on posting plenty of photos: You’ll find untouched folk architecture throughout the region, as well as perfectly preserved Gothic and Baroque buildings awaiting your lens,” the daily wrote.
