Hi Tomas, as I see from your photo, Vysoka is a common love of all mountain lovers in Slovakia! :) Cheers Miso.

The truth is, that the name of Vysoka is the oldest from all High Tatras peaks. It is remembered in old chronicles from 13th century in its present form "Vysoka" and it means "The Lady highest". Not only we, also our predecessors were fascinated by Vysoka.

It has been the favourite mountain of plenty of mountaineers for centuries... The name of Vysoka existed in texts 6 centuries sooner than slovak language was codified (in 13th century chronicle). It's simply wonderful... I'm going to share some new photos of The Lady ;)

People here around admire her for at least 8 centuries, when she's got her name. So it is clear that I and our predecessors completely agree with you :)
