    Tatranské Zruby is a recreational settlement situated westwards from Old Smokovec at the "Way of Freedom".
    Originally it was called Vojenské Zruby (Military Shacks), because it had been founded and used as a military training camp for the Czech-Slovakian Army forces.
    Successively - esp. after the World War Second - Tatranské Zruby expanded into a modern recreational centre for armed forces and their relatives.
    In the settlement, there is a memorial devoted to 24 Russian pilots and Czech-Slovakian paratroopers who were shot down in a transport plane at the Back Gerlachovský Pinnacle while arriving to help during the Slovak National Uprising on October 9, 1944.

NOTE: Administrative part of the town Vysoké Tatry (High Tatras)
