Poland - Tatry

Tatry or the Tatra Mountains.

Sent by Basia, a postcrosser from Poland.

This is from Wikipedia : The Tatra Mountains, Tatras or Tatra (Tatry in both Polish and Slovak, Tátra in Hungarian), constitute a mountain range which forms a natural border between Slovakia and Poland and is the highest mountain range of the Carpathians. They occupy an area of 750 km², the major part (600 km²) of which lies in Slovakia. The highest mountain is Gerlach at 2,655 m, located in Slovakia just north of Poprad. The north-western peak of Rysy (2,499 m) is the highest Polish mountain.
