Rysy is a mountain in the crest of the High Tatras, at the Polish-Slovak border. Rysy has three peaks: middle (2503 m), north-western (2499 m) and south-eastern (2473 m). The north-western peak is the highest point of Poland, while the highest of the three peaks is just on the Slovak side of the border.

Rysy is the highest Tatra mountain available to individual tourists (without a guide). It is possible to ascend the peak from the Slovakian side starting at Štrbské pleso and passing the Chata pod Rysmi or from the Polish side coming from the Morskie Oko. Since 2000, there is a pedestrian border crossing at the peak, operating between 1st July and 30 September. Its opening hours are 7:00-19:00. At the altitude of 2250 m on the Slovakian side there is a mountain chalet Chata pod Rysmi, which is open only during the summer season (from May till October).
