Folk handicrafts, like lace or folk costumes, make for interesting, one-of-a-kind souvenirs. You'll see stands selling these items at all of the major resorts. Look especially in the parking lots, where the stands are set up to cater to visiting tourist buses. One of the nicest places to buy handmade folk items, including genuine folk costumes, textiles, and ceramics, is Ú?uv, Tatranská Lomnica 36 (tel. 052/446-7322). Sport Risy, Starý Smokovec 70 (tel. 052/478-2911), is a good place to stock up anything you might need for a hike. They carry a full range of high-quality walking and hiking boots, fleeces, caps, and outerwear, and can give good advice on what you're likely to need.
