Historical and current overview of negative anthropogenic impacts on eastern part of Low Tatras
AbstractThe report describes present state of tourist possibilities and historical overview of human activities such as mining, pastoralism and forestry in regions of the Low Tatras (specially part surrounding the peak of Kráľová Hoľa) and Horehronie (upper part of the valley of river Hron). High potential of physical environment was massively changed after the windthrow disasters especially the last one in 2004 which was reflected also in possibilities of land use from hiking point of view. The restoration of tourist paths and supporting equipment is presently in progress. Today’s system of nature protection and landscape conservation in Slovak Republic seems to be a problem for environmentally suitable tourism development.
