A photo of a couple of tourists who set up tents on the shores of Morskie Oko, despite the ban on camping, was published by the Tatromaniak website. – In the Tatra National Park, it is forbidden to camp and use open fire, so it is unacceptable that someone pitches a tent on the trail – reminds Weronika Błaszkiewicz from the Information Center of the Tatra National Park in an interview with TVN24.
Camping in the TPN is prohibited
– If everyone would put up a tent in the Tatra Mountains, light a gas stove, would like to spend the night on the top or in any place, these mountains would soon become an amusement park. That is why we have to stick to the rules, moreover, they are regulated by the Nature Conservation Act – adds Weronika Błaszkiewicz.
As explained by TVN24 reporter Konrad Borusiewicz, for setting up a campsite in places where it is prohibited, you may be fined PLN 500. – On the other hand, if someone would like to legally, close to nature, spend time in a similar way, they can use the areas made available by the State Forests as part of the “Night in the forest” campaign. These are thousands of hectares all over the country. It is only important to leave these areas as we found them – he said.
