You can find train and bus transport options HERE.
From the D1 motorway Ružomberok-Mengusovce take the exit Važec and continue towards Poprad. (From the direction of Poprad, exit the motorway at Mengusovce just after the Bôrik tunnel and follow the main road to Tatranská Štrba, pass through the village, go under the bridge and turn right after about 150 m after the bridge).
You can recognize the turn from both directions by the green sign CHATOVA OBLASŤ No. 3 TATRANSKÁ STRBA LIESKOVEC and a large sign with the sign Penzion Medvedica (which is not us). You are turning onto an asphalt road, not a rutted forest road! From the turn off you will go about 700 m, where you will see a container shed on your left with a sign pointing to Tatra Chalets and you will also see a white house with a brown roof, which you will turn towards. You can also orient yourself by the house number - the cottage numbers are 3057 and 3058. If you are at the higher numbers, you have already passed the chalets, if at the lower ones, you have to go further. At the turn-off to our powder room, there is a signpost on the right hand side of the road pointing to a cogwheel pointing to the right, but at which you turn left! In front of the container shed, turn left and park -there is enough space for 8-10 cars.
Get off the train and facing the station, turn left along the cobbled walkway that leads from the station building along Platform 1 and continues along Track 1 for about 150 m. After the traffic lights, there is a sharp uphill turn in front of a brick railway box, which will take you out onto a woodland path. Follow it down a little way and turn right along the footpath and in about 2 minutes you will find yourself on the main road Važec-T. Štrba.Cross the road and directly opposite continue along the asphalt road to the Lieskovec cottage settlement. From the turn-off about 700 m you will see on your left a shelter with containers with the sign Tatranské chaty on it.You can also orient yourself by the house number - the cottage numbers are 3057 and 3058.If you are at the higher numbers, you have already passed the chalets, if you are at the lower ones, you have to go further.
