Photographer's Note

The Zamkovského Chalet (1475 m above the sea) is a very nice chalet situated in the lower part of the Malá Studená dolina (the Small Cold Valley).
The chalet was built in 1943 by Štefan Zamkovský (1908 - 1961), a famous mountain-guide and a climber. It soon became very popular among the hikers and climbers, who started to call the hut after its builder.
After it was nationalised by communistic state authorities, Štefan Zamkovský had to leave the High Tatras.
In 1992 the chalet was returned to the ownership of the successors of Štefan Zamkovský.

The hut is located in the woods, and do not be surprised if you are greeted by a well-grown bear at the door – carved from wood. The electric fence around the hut is not without a cause, though, as there were instances when a sandwich left on the terrace at night ended up as real bear supper. The area around the Zamkovszky Hut offers various hiking possibilities; there are a couple of marked trails that can be combined in a number of ways.
