At the western end of Slovak Paradise, at the border with the Low Tatras, one of the most massive mountain passes is located: Vernárska tiesňava.

The frequented road between Poprad and Rožňava leads here, many know it from a car-ride but only a few stop by, Spiš Korzár wrote.

Vernárska Tiesňava was dug out by the Vernársky Stream in the western part of Tri Kopce, a massive rocky formation.

Vernárska Tiesňava, with an area of almost 83 hectares of a national natural reservation, is part of the Slovenský Raj National Park.

During the Slovak National Uprising, there were massive battles in this location and there is a memorial here today.
