11 - The High Tatras - Part I



So, after visiting entire southwestern and central part of the Slovakia, let's advance to the second part of this CJ. As in the first part, we will begin with two part update on the one of most popular and visited areas of the country. In first part it was city of Bratislava, now it will be area on the north from Low Tatras, the High Tatras, where is located highest point of Carpathian mountain range, Mount Gerlachovski, 2.655 m above sea level. But first, the Replies and small map.


On this minor map, places of the areas shown in the last 5 updates can be seen.


There are many areas and valleys with beautiful nature in high Tatras, through many of them are flowing mountain streams, including rivers White and Black Vah.


Second highest peak in High Tatras, Mount Lomnica, is one of the not many peaks there with Cable car leading to the top. This cable car was a world rarity when built before many decades, and now it is still frequently used.


On the higher parts of the mountains, when not covered by snow, they are covered by rocks, grass, and typical flora of High Tatras.


Second largest natural lake in Slovakia and most beautiful one is Strbske Pleso, located in the most visited area in the mountains, with many hotels and tourist attractions. But there is still beautiful nature...


Last picture I will show you is real life view from the one of peaks of High Tatras.


There will be much more shown of this area in future updates.

Fantastic! Amazing! I love the cable car. The clearing of the forest and the rocks underneath adds to the realism (a lot of these here in Norway). And the last picture is mindblowing! Imagine SimCity actually looking like that.. :drool:
