  • Kezmarok dates from the 13th century. Tour of Cerveny Klastor, a former Gothic church and monastery of Carthusian monks built-in 1319. It was rebuilt in the baroque style of the 18th century and is now a national cultural monument.

  • Gerlachovsky is one of 12 peaks over 8,000 feet that are accessible only with a mountain rescue guide.

Some climbing experience is essential. Your trip leader can advise you of additional details.
