The symbolic cemetery is located near Popradské pleso. On its place you will find more than 160 memorial-boards and 50 hand-carved wooden crosses. Originally all the memorial-boards were scattered all around the High Tatras, more or less at the places of tragedies. Otakar Štáfl (1884 – 1945), an academic artist, was the author of the idea to found a symbolic cemetery. At the same time he, his wife and some friends were the ones who realised it in 1936. It was finished in 1940 and open to public with the following motto: ”As a remembrance to the death and a warning to the alive”.
