3 reasons why Kranj is love at first sight

#1 CULTURAL HEART OF SLOVENIA The old town of Kranj is one of the most charming in Slovenia. At every step, you can feel the affection for culture and the greatest Slovenian poet, France Prešeren. His poem ‘Zdravljica’ (A Toast), the national anthem, celebrates friendship between all nations. Many peoples have crossed Kranj in its 6000-year history. Today, the old town host many events and a vivid art scene..

#2 ONE FOOT IN THE CITY, THE OTHER IN NATURE A unique feature of Kranj is its special location; the town rises above a 30-metre deep canyon. The locals like to spend their afternoons on hiking adventures – why not join them! The hills of Šmarjetna and Saint Jošt are ideal for a short trip and offer stunning views of the mountains and the valley. You will be particularly welcomed at the farmsteads in the countryside if you arrive on foot or by bike. Greenery is all around.

#3 THE CAPITAL OF SLOVENIAN ALPS Each inhabitant of Kranj with even a pinch of mountaineering spirit climbs the 2000-metre mountain of Storžič, which gives Kranj its characteristic image.. Join experienced alpine guides in the Alps. When the snow falls, Kranj is an excellent starting point for visiting our alpine ski resorts. Popular Krvavec is so close that we could almost call it the Kranj ski slope. Welcome to the capital of Slovenian Alps.
