Born in the glorious High Tatras, ŠTRBKO the Bear's grandfather used to lazily stride around Štrbské pleso and loved to be photographed with High Tatras visitors back in the twentieth century.
Many visitors have this vacation souvenir at home proudly on the mantelpiece. The ŠTRBKO family also had a hand (or paw) in the movies: ŠTRBKO the Bear starred in Medená veža (The Copper Tower) and its sequel Orlie pierko (The Feather of an Eagle) in the early 1970s.
And the iconic bear has kept up with the times by being graphically reborn in today's digital world. You could meet ŠTRBKO while strolling around the lake, or at major cultural and sports events.
He's always cheerful and smiling - and loves posing for a selfie with you - what a great souvenir of your fantastic High Tatra adventure!
But be careful! You could also meet his real brother – the brown bear – in the Tatra National Park. If so, be very careful - don't panic and don't take photos.
If you want a photo as a souvenir, ŠTRBKO is always happy to pose for you.
