People waiting for trains at the stations of the Tatra electric railway (TEŽ) now have a new way to pass the time provided by the book boxes that have been installed by the Tatranský Parlament (Tatra Parliament) civic association.

“There are seven of them spread out through the High Tatras,” said the chairman of the association Michal Hanč, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

“We wanted to connect main knots of the TEŽ, so they are located at the stations in Poprad, Starý Smokovec, Tatranská Lomnica and Štrbské Pleso,” he said for SITA.

There is also one in Lomnica’s park, near one of the local hotels and another near the evangelic church in Starý Smokovec.
