II: luxurious establishment, prominent position in the moment of its inauguration
Current listing covers:

Thank you for your help and suggestinos!

Grand Hotel Praha

Grand Hotel Praha is perfectly located in the centre of Tatranska Lomnica, at the foot of Lomnicky Peak, right in the heart of High Tatras. Its history dates back to more than 100 years ago, to its spectacular opening in 1905. It offers rich history, stylish interior and an excellent cuisine.

History

The turn of the 19th and 20th centuries in Europe is known as a period called in France ‘La belle épogue’, meaning 'The Beautiful Period' . There were no wars, industries and trade was blossoming. Railways, press, telegraph and telephone shortened the distances. Modern aristocracy lived comfortably and was financially secure to indulge in pleasant activities. Architects established a new style appropriate for this period - art nouveau. Until then, the High Tatras were considered to be mainly a health and recreation resort. Now, they should become a meeting spot of European aristocracy. This gave the rise of new luxury hotels in Tatras more than 100 years ago. A unique hotel in Tatranska Lomnica was built by International Sleeping-car Society from Brussels (Wagons Lits Cook). Its construction, at the foot of Lomnicky Peak at an altitude of 908 m, began in 1904 and in 1905 it was finalized according to the project of architects Quido Hoepfner and Gejza Gyori from Budapest. It was opened on the 1st of July 1905.

Kempinski High Tatras (Grand Hotel Hviezdoslav, Hviezdoslav Sanatorium)

The former Grand Hotel, later known as the Hviezdoslav Sanatorium, was built in 1882 right on the bank of the Štrbské Tarn. The goal of the current reconstruction is to raise its standard to the level of five-star luxurious hotels. In the first stage, the hotel will get a new eastern and western wing with luxurious suites and a wellness centre. In the second stage, the building will be connected to a pedestrian zone with a number of stylish restaurants, cafés, boutiques and other services. A lively promenade full of various amusement and rest facilities will grow up in the close vicinity of the Štrbské Tarn against the background of the beauties of nature.
