Google travelled to the Slovak mountains and visited the Zbojnícka and Téryho chalets, one of the highest Tatra chalets.

Thanks to cooperation with the Club of Slovak Tourists and Slovak Mountaineering Union JAMES, it is possible to check the beauty of Slovak mountains, chalets and their surroundings.

“This will allow people who have some health handicap or are of advanced age to virtually visit the chalets,” said Peter Dragúň, director of the Club of Slovak Tourists.

“And for young, healthy people, it is an alluring teaser for beautiful sceneries at several hundred meteres of altitude and enjoy an endorphin rush from a nice hike with a sweaty back and a real cup of sweet-smelling tea at our chalets,” he summed up.
