The Tatras are the highest elevation in the whole great arc of the Carpathians and the only high mountains on the line connecting the Alps with the Caucasus. They form a lofty band, branched on both sides and rising steeply from the surrounding basins of Podhale, They will write, Liptov and Orava. Both ends are limited by the Huciańska Pass (904 m) and Żdziarska (ok. 1076 m). The range from west to east is upwards 50 km, width - almost small 20 km, and the length of the main ridge 75 km, not including the transverse ridge of the Belianske Tatras.
In terms of landscape and geology, the whole group is divided into 4 parts: Belianske Tatras (the highest peak of Havran, 2152 m), High Tatras (Gierlach, 2655 m), Western Tatras (Smart, 2248 m) and the Siwa Wierch massif (1806 m).
