Miro Gregor and Jozef Nyka. Swiat Tatr (Tatra Mountains). The Tatras are divided between two countries: Poland and Slovakia. Four fifths lies in Slovakia, but some of the most interesting sights, including wonderful caves, are situated in Poland in the limestone of the Western Tatras. The Tatras form the central, highest and most beautiful section of the Carpathian mountain range. They are ringed by four broad basins: Podhale, Orawa, Liptow and Spisz. The highest mountain in the Tatras is Gierlach. The highest peak in the Polish Tatras is Rysy. The Tatras may be divided into three parts: the Western Tatras (Tatry Zachodnie), the High Tatras (Tatry Wysokie) and the Bielskie Tatras (Tatry Bielskie). The most interesting part, and the most frequented by tourists, is the High Tatras. One fifth of the entire Tatras area lies in Poland, Dolina Rybiego Potoku, the most beautiful nook in the High Tatras, and the Dolina Koscieliska, the most lovely valley in the Western Tatras, are both situated in the Polish section of the Tatras. 194 beautiful color photos with captions.
