Webcam description

New Smokovec. It is a tourist and recovery-recreational settlement situated in the High Tatras, close to the Starý Smokovec (Old Smokovec). The settlement is an archaeological locality. Remains from an iron ore mine were found while building up the settlement about 2 km south-east on the left bank of the Slavkovský Creek. The mine is from the late iron era called Lathene. The question of origin of the iron ore is still not solved. The settlement originally consisted of two sanatoria of Dr. Mikuláš Szontagh (1843 – 1899) used for tuberculosis patients. Some of the oldest buildings from the year 1875 still stand near to the new health care centre. The New Smokovec was the first settlement in the High Tatras that was open also in winter (since 1883). The first cinema was open in 1913. The current sanatorium for tuberculosis and other respiration illnesses was open in 1925 and a modern sanatorium-house Palace was open in 1933. A large habitation area Sibír was built in the western end of the settlement in 1958 and new hotels were added close before the World Ski Championship in 1970. NOTE: Administrative part of the town Vysoké Tatry (High Tatras)

In the native language of the webcam owner
Liečebno-turistická osada blízko Starého Smokovca. Osada je archeologickou lokalitou, pri zakladaní dnešnej osady odkryli asi 2 km na juhovýchod, na ľavom brehu Slavkovského potoka pozostatky huty z laténskej doby. Otázku pôvodu železnej rudy, ktorú tu tavili, sa zatiaľ nepodarilo vyriešiť. Základy dnešnej osady tvorili klimatické sanatóriá dr. Mikuláša Szontagha (1843-1899) na liečbu tuberkulózy. Časť najstarích budov z r.1875 stojí dodnes neďaleko novej polikliniky. Nový Smokovec mal od r.1883 ako prvý vo Vysokých Tatrách aj zimnú prevádzku a od r.1913 aj kino. Roku 1925 dali do prevádzky terajšiu liečebňu tuberkulózy a respiračných chorôb a r.1933 moderný liečebný dom Palace. Roku 1958 vyrástlo na západnom okraji osady rozsiahle obytné sídlisko Sibír a pred lyžiarskymi majstrovstvami sveta 1970 pribudli nové hotelové kapacity. POZNÁMKA: Mestská časť mesta Vysoké Tatry.
