It was founded in 1880. At the beginning, the population was crowded close to the railway station, later it expanded to the surroundings. A habitation area with 11 blocks of flats and hotels was built in the 1970´s and 1980´s, as a result of the World Ski Championship in 1970. It is an important starting point for the hikes to the western part of the High Tatras. A mountain railway to Strbske pleso (Strbske Mountain-lake) starts here. The population of Tatranska Strba is nowadays of about 1400 people.
