Tatra Mountains or just Tatras is a mountain range lying in southern Poland and northern Slovakia. It has alpine character and is the highest mountain range of the Carpathians. I was few times in Tatra National Park in Poland and in Slovakia, and surely I will visit it more times. It offers amazing views and challenging hiking trails.
