Beware of bears in the Tatras!!


The coming winter and deteriorating weather have caused the animals to
descend to the lower parts of the mountains and appear on the most

not the only threat for mountain lovers now. The weather in the upper
parts of the Tatars has worsened. It is cold and snowfall is expected.

Mały miś
Do lasu bał się iść,
Ze strachu drżał jak liść
Pluszowy miś.
Ciemny las -

Nie damy się!
Śmiało w przód!
Po słodki, wonny miód!
Jagody - istny cud!
Użyjem w bród!

I was last weekend in the Tatra.
A bear was very noisy for the whole night in
front of the Murowaniec hut. Sounded like the
soundtrack to Jurassic Park. Haven't seen him.
There were notes informing about the bear. If you
meet him, you should back up quietly.

By the way: Weather was fantastic, had only a little
old snow above 2000m. Crampons were not required.
