Tatranská Lomnica is situated at an elevation of 820 m in the High Tatra mountains of eastern Slovakia at the foot of Slovakia's second-highest mountain, Lomnický štít (2,632 m). Tatranská Lomnica is one of the largest towns of the area. The municipality was founded in 1892. It is especially popular as a winter resort and also is the seat of the administration of the Tatra National Park.
The former Palace Hotel [far left, no. 3694, and near left, no. 997: background] was built in 1905 in Secessionist style and today operates under the name Grandhotel Praha.
Hotel Lomnica [near left, no. 4227] was built in 1893–1894 by the architect Gedeon Majunke to be the first hotel in the Tatras.
After World War I, the property was aquired by the Czechoslovak state, but subsequently was abandoned. In the 1930s, after the construction of a cable car to the peak of Lomnický štít, Lomnica became a popular hotspot of social life again. In the 1990s, after a privatisation, the hotel sadly once again closed. However, the building was renovated in 2015–2016 by a new investor and again serves as a hotel.
Fifteen communities were joined in 1947 to form the new municipality of Vysoké Tatry (High Tatra).

The 15 formerly independent communities were (from west to east, names given in Slovak, Hungarian, German and Polish):
