TARG Sphere of Influence Map (large)This map shows the extent of the Tatra Area Research Group's (TARG's) Sphere of Influence. It is an imaginary circle with a radius of roughly 60km (36 miles) with mighty Kasprov Peak at its center. TARG's sphere thereby includes most of Orava, Liptov and Spis counties in Slovakia and also all of the areas known locally as Orawa, Podhale and Spisz in Poland's Malopolskie province. All known Goral villages are included within TARG's sphere except those around Cadca, Slovakia.

This website also has a grid of interactive higher resolution maps for you to explore.

If you want to see where the Tatra mountains fit in the Carpathian chain (and Europe itself), go to the Carpathians' Satellite Image.

There is also a copy of the Spisska Kapitula Diocese Map (circa 1920) which included much of Orava, Liptov and Spis counties.
