Thanks to Jan Stolba for adding this peak.

Kasprov vrch, or Kasprowy Wierch in Polish, is a baldy peak above Zakopane. It is one of the most eastern peaks of the Western Tatras. The Polish-Slovakian border cuts through the summit. From Suche saddle, on the eastern side of the mountain, it is possible to descend both into Poland and into Slovakia. Kasprov vrch is very popular with tourists, since both cable car and chairlift go to the summit from the Polish side. There is also meteorological and astronomical observatory on the top.
