A cliche, but I thought it's nice: the High Tatras behind the train station.
Out programme was a ride with the heritage train of the High Tatra tram. On the picture: powered car number 22, built by Ganz in 1913. The trailer behind it was also built by Ganz.
The controller switch of the powered car.
Strbske Pleso, upper terminus of the service, with some modern train sets.
There's also a cog-wheel railway running up to here from Strba, but we haven't seen its vehicles.
The heritage tram zig-zags downwards to avoid steep gradients.
On the way back to Poprad: the stop at Nova Lesna. This is where we always stayed during our visits.
What a nice place!
The rest of the day was spent heading back to Hungary on our "soap on steel wheels".
Our last stop was at Zvolen, a city with a historical castle (the the left behind the masts) once belonging to the family of a famous hungarian poet.
The faithful "Árpád" arrived to Budapest in the late evening - quite a long trip for an almost 70-years-old railcar! The ride was a bit tiring, but we visite some very nice places!
