Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I like Ľadový dom. It's something you don't see every day and it was beautiful. But it is something only for a few minutes. I was there two times and don't regret it.

Don’t miss it if you’re nearby but don’t go out of your way. It’s a huge ice sculpture but you can’t fully walk around it. Entrance is free. Different sculptures every year.

We travelled up on the Cable car. The area was beautiful, with plenty of room for sledging as well as checking out the ice sculpting. The cathedral was contained within a huge canvas igloo which was colder inside than the air outside! I understand that the Cathedral is slightly different every year. It certainly is worth going to see. I particularly liked the bears which had been placed around the outside of the Cathedral - some of them attempting to "climb" the columns. Very apt for the area. There was a second igloo with ice sculptures completed by entrants from various neighbouring countries, and several ice chairs or thrones outside for photo ops. We were there on a sunny day and you could also see for miles.

The temple is not big, but it's worth a visit. Every year it gets reconstructured. In season 2018/2019 it's been rebuilt as la Basilica Papale di San Pietro. It's easily accessiible by the cable car, which runs every half an hour and costs 11 EUR (adult - discounts possible). It does not take much time to visit the temple, about 15 minutes, but around there is a nice path in Tatra mountains. One of the itineraries leads to waterfalls - it's a walk of 30-60-90 min - depends on your stamina.

Hrebienok. Sculptures and even the whole chapel made of ice - amazing and breathtaking. Easily accessible with mountain cablecar. You can go down, back to Smokovec, enjoying sledging. Available for rent at Smokovec at the station (guaranteed) as well as at the upper station in Hrebienok.

This year it was two domes containing ice church and selection of ice sculptures, but the theme changes from year to year. Very nice artwork. It is located at Hrebienok where you can get by train from Stary Smokovec.

Very magical ice monument inspired by Sagrada Familia. Be prepared that it´s very very cold inside. Tatransky Dom is located at Hrebienok where you can get by train from Stary Smokovec or just simply hike to the mountains (approx. 30-60 min hike). Train costs 8€ (Monday to Thursday) and 10€ (Friday to Sunday).

I love the Hrebienok, however this dome is nice, but could be better. I was disapointed that you are not able to get closer to the beautiful ice sculptures and take pictures of the amazing craftsman ship. also a bit disapointing was the mercedes benz sign right in the middle, I mean seriously...

This year's "ice art" reminds a mini-version of Barcelona's Sagrada Familia. Beautiful art work with incredible details - people, animals, windows. Definitely well worth to see.
