The highest situated shelter in Poland (1670 MASL), was built in years 1947-1953 near Przedni Pond. Its unusual atmosphere is held thanks to unique localization in the very heart of High Tatras.

Morskie Oko is a largest and most beautiful Tatra lake, surrounded by highest peaks of polish Tatras. It lays in a gorge, part of Rybi Potok Valley, since the old lake name was Rybi Staw (Fish Pond) because of a trout living in its waters.
