Pension Karpatia **
“Where shall we go for a holiday?” Eva asked. “Karpatia!” cried her three children in unison. Let’s play on the bank of Studený potok and run around amidst the trees in Tatranská Lesná!

More tips for trips
The first building in Tatranská Lesná
Pension Karpatia (formerly Carpathia) was the first building constructed in the village of Tatranská Lesná in 1928.
Later on a few other hotels, pensions and a children’s sanatorium were built on Cesta Slobody leading from Tatranská Lomnica to Starý Smokovec. Holiday village Tatranská Lesná has quickly become one of the most popular tourist centers in the Tatras thanks to its beautiful untouched nature.
