Nový Smokovec

It is a tourist and recovery-recreational settlement close to Starý Smokovec. The settlement originally consisted of two sanatoria of Dr. Mikuláš Szontagh (1843 - 1899) used for tuberculosis patients. Some of the oldest buildings from the year 1875 still stand near the new health care centre. Nový Smokovec was the first settlement in the High Tatras that was open also in winter (since 1883). A large habitation area Sibír was built in the western end of the settlement in 1958 and new hotels were added close before the World Ski Championship in 1970.
