After a short ride we have parked in Starý Smokovec (3 hours / 8 EUR) – another popular ski resort, from where we took the Starý Smokovec–Hrebienok funicular (11 EUR / person) to the small peak Hrebienok at an altitude of 1285 meters. There we hiked in cloudy weather for an hour around nearby waterfalls. Lunch we had at Bilikova Chata (Vegetable broth 2,50 EUR, Chicken steak with mushroom sauce and potatoes pancakes 9 EUR, Roasted chicken leg with rice 6,50 EUR, Kofola 0,5 l / 1,70 EUR). Starý Smokovec has also some important buildings – the Grand Hotel (from 1904), few villas, and the neo-gothic church of the Immaculate Conception built in the year 1888 in the alpine style with characteristic half-timbered masonry.
