How to get to the venue?
It is within a stone's throw to the Tatras by car. The location of the High Tatras is unique as they are very close to large town centres and airports and thus easy to get to. A beautiful panorama makes the drive really exceptional. The resort of the High Tatras is only a 3.5 hour drive by car from Bratislava and a 1.5 hour drive from Košice.
The international airport Poprad - Tatry is the highest located airport in Central Europe and the entrance gate to the High Tatras. The Poprad airport is only a 15 minute drive from the ski resort of the High Tatras (Tatranská Lomnica, Starý Smokovec and Štrbské Pleso), only a 40 minute drive from the thermal park Tatralandia and a 50 min drive from the largest ski resort of Central and Eastern Europe – Jasná Chopok.
