The sight of the craggy peaks of the High Tatras mountains straddling the Poland-Slovakia border is unforgettable, beautiful and dramatic.As well as the High Tatras, the second edition of this book also covers the neighbouring but contrasting White and Western Tatras ranges. It is currently the only English-language guidebook covering this spectacular area in depth.The two sides of the range, in Slovakia and Poland, offer totally contrasting experiences. In Slovakia, you can walk from several villages strung out along the foot of the range. In Poland, there is just one main resort, Zakopane, a delightful small town that retained its traditional atmosphere through the ravages of the Communist era.The book also includes sections on history, vegetation and wildlife, weather, languages, preparations for your trip, accommodation and local attractions. For anyone wishing to visit the High Tatras, this book is a must.

'For the keen walker this excellent guide offers an area which is both less well-know and a challenge. As well as the High Tatras, this second edition covers the neighbouring White Tatras in Slovakia and the Western Tatras in Poland. Colin Saunders has wide experience of walking in many parts of Britain and is a member of the Outdoor Writer's Guild, while Renata Narozna was born and bred there. Together they provide a detailed insight into the possibilities for walking at every level.' (The Keswick Reminder / August 2006) 'The book is an example of what a good guidebook should be, crammed with useful information. In addition to the routes, it describes the history, flora and fauna, weather, planning, safety, accommodation, etc. Though, it is all in one mountain area, the book correctly describes separately the Polish and Slovak Tatras. One needs separate bases for these; there are separate languages and currencies. This book is essential for anyone planning to walk in these mountains.' (Irish Mountain Log / Winter 2006) 'Written by Colin Saunders and Renata Narozna, the Cicerone guide to the High Tatras breaks the range into two logical areas, the Slovak and White Tatras and the Polish Tatras. Their knowledge of the range is encyclopaedic. Like all Cicerone guides, information and directions are clear and concise and contains a wealth of other information. I'm positive you'll find something to your taste in these wonderful mountains and enough information to get you there in this excellent guidebook.' (Walking World Ireland magazine / 2007 Annual)
