The purpose of this page is to present the beautiful mountain lakes/tarns (Slovak: pleso, Polish: staw) of the smallest high mountain range of Europe.

At the moment, photos are arranged so that lakes located in the same main valleys are are lumped together (occasionally I lumped some valleys together are well, in cases when there were too few photos).

If you feel you have a good picture that I haven't noticed, you're welcome to attach!
