Photographer's Note

The view from Lomnicky Stit(2.634m a.s.l.) to the Mala Studena dolina.
The first tourist ascent was done by the English traveller Robert Townson from Malá Studená Dolina (Small Cold Valley) in 1793. He measured almost the precise height of the Lomnický Peak. Winter ascent was done in 1891.
The peak has been accessible by a cable car from Tatranská Lomnica since 1940. Thus it became the most visited peak of the High Tatras. The cable car station on the top of the peak is connected to the highest situated Astronomical and Meteorological Observatory in Slovakia. At the summit, the TV transmission station was built in 1957 and electric power line was brought in from Skalnatá dolina (Rocky Valley) in 1965.
