The Tatra National Park of Slovakia is the oldest protected area. In the Tatras we can distinguish three basic bands - Western Tatras, High Tatras and Belian Tatras. The northern borders of the Tatra Park stretch along the Slovak-Polish border. The Carpathian arch passes through the park through the Gerlach peak (2655 m above sea level) and 16 other peaks exceeding the height of 2500 m above sea level. Although the ridge of the High Tatras in the Tatra National Park is only 26 km, it is also the coldest and highest located area of Slovakia. The High Tatras are a mountain range with perfectly developed glacial forms (boilers, moraines). The most famous glacial valleys in the High Tatras include the Koprowa Valley, Cicha, Mięguszowiecka, Staroleśna and the Small Cold Water Valley, Jaworowa, the White Water Valley and the Green Kieżmarska Valley. The park has about 100 lakes, the largest of which is Wielki Hińczowy Pond.
