Photographer's Note

Téryho chalet was built by the Hungarian Carpathian union thanks to Edmund Téry (1856 - 1917) a doctor from Banská Štiavnica and a mountain pioneer, who played a very important role in developing tourism in the High Tatras. Till 1933 it was the highest situated chalet in Hungaria.

From 1936 Téryho chalet has as the first one in the High Tatras been opened the whole year. The designer of the chalet was a well-known architect and a constructor Gedeon Majunke from Spišská Sobota (his significant buildings: wooden churches in Starý Smokovec and Dolný Smokovec and some houses with timber framed architecture in Starý Smokovec).

Till 1928 the chalet belonged to Carpathenverain, later on to the Czechoslovak tourist club and today it belongs to a firm Slovenské Karpaty Ltd. In 1983-84 the chalet was reconstructed, however it still keeps its former typical look designed by Majunke from the beginning of the century.
