Even though the majority of tourists head to Štrbské Pleso in the High Tatras, the Lakes of Love are located nearby, close to Mlynica Stream.
Due to its beautiful nature and pleasant environment, they are a favourite place to visit and relax. In the past, they were called Štrbské Pounds, used for breeding trout.
The romantic name came about after benches were added and couples from a nearby healing institute were visiting them.
The road is marked with information tables that reveal the history of the place. See the photos in our gallery:
