On Saturday, February 8, 2020, a new record was broken when views over 300 kilometres away were documented.
SHMÚ reported on its website that Polish observer Michał Skiba of Kráľova Hoľa in the Low Tatras succeeded in capturing the Apunesi Mountains in Romania, which are about 310 kilometres away.
From Slovakia to Romania
“It is the first documented reaching of a distance of 300 kilometres or higher in the history of distant views from an area of Slovakia, but probably from all of central Europe as well,” meteorologists reported on the website.
During standard conditions, it is only possible in Slovakia to see views from “three hundred” from the highest peaks of the High Tatras and the Low Tatras, specifically from Kráľova hoľa, meteorologists stated.
The previous maximum was valid for just over a month (the Alps from Ostredok in Veľká Fatra, 285 kilometres).
