Chata pri Zelenom plese

+421 901 767 420

Chata pri Zelenom plese (1551m.) is open all year-round. It is located in the valley of Zelené pleso (“green tarn”). Throughout the years stood around the tarn several chalets that were destroyed either by storm or fire.


The first visitors of the Zelené pleso had no opportunity to spend the night here. In 1876 the first shelter hut named Egidova chata was built on the nearby meadow Rakúska poľana. In 1887 the shelter hut was moved to the southern shore of the tarn and, unfortunately, in 1890 it burned down. In 1897, on the northern shore of the tarn, a new chalet was built – Fridrichova chata – this time named after archbishop Frederick Habsburg. After the fall of the monarchy, until 1950 it was called Chata pri Zelenom plese („Chalet next to the Green Tarn“) when it was renamed to Brnčalova chata in honor of Albert Brnčal, a sports professor, member of the JAMES mountaineering association, participant of the Slovak National Uprising, who as a mountaineering instructor died on August 1st 1950 under a saddle Jastrabie sedlo in a valley Malá Zmrzlá dolina. In 1992, its name changed again to Chata pri Zelenom plese. The tarn is one of the most beautiful in the Tatras.
