    Ski Flying is something that you need to see for real to believe.
    The courage of the athletes who compete in this event is second to none and they deserve to be seen and supported, every one of them.
    The atmosphere here is electric as everyone wills the record to be broken again.
    There is a huge party culture and everyone is happy. Large quantities of alcohol are consumed and there is little if any trouble. All of the fans are superb.
    Planica is where the previous world record was held and they don't call it the Monster! for nothing. When all of the modifications are complete Planica will be a world class Nordic centre and maybe the record will again be home.

    LITTLE JASNA LAKE

    Little Jasna Lake
    4 more images

    Either drive your Car like we did, or walk the 2km from Kranjska Gora to Little Jasna Lake.

    This lake was stunning! The water was so crystal clear, that I could see the pebble's and rocks located on the bottom, and it was such a pretty blue green!
    The Duck's must be fed by people, as when they saw me walking beside the Lake, they soon paddled over! Surrounding the Lake, were Mountains, and on one side the Village. I walked until I came to the Mountain Goat Sculpture, and took some more photo's! It was a wonderful spot for photo's, as the reflection's from the Mountain's were perfect in the Lake.

    Beautiful area, worth going to !

    CHURCH OF ASSUMPTION OF THE VIRGIN MARY

    This was a lovely, small Church built in the late Gothic period, in 1510.
    The Church was built in honour of the Virgin Mary in the early days of Kranjska Gora. Now days, not much of this old Church is left, just the Bell Tower built in Romanesque style is remaining.

    I thought it was rather sweet, and enjoyed viewing the old frescoes on the outside.
    Inside, I had to look through glass doors and take photo's through the glass

    The stalls in my photo were being set up for a market day.

    TOURIST INFORMATION CENTRE

    Information Centre

    On entering Kranjska Gora, we made our 1st stop the Information Centre.
    On entering inside, I was met by a helpful lady, who told me about the surrounding area, and how to get there by Car.
    What was good, was the FREE MAP OF SLOVENIA, which was as good or better than ones I had previously bought for other countries!
    The map was very handy, as we had just entered Slovenia.

    Climb Ciprnik!

    View from the summit

    Why come to Kranjska Gora? Mountains! And if you've only got time for a little peak, then Ciprnik, jutting out modestly above the Planica valley, with a bald crown affording views over to the mighty Triglav and his lofty companions, is the one to do.
    A chairlift will take you up to reach a ridge, from where it's easy climbing through forest before one final rocky ascent to the peak- and what a peak! In the light of a late August afternoon, the mountains were pink and we could see over into Italy and Austria over the Karavanke Range.

    Careful on the way down though- take the first path down or you'll end up searching for waymarkers on a steep scree slope, as we did.

    Planica is a regular trip for myself and a few friends, we meet up at the same hotel with some Norwegians who are in Vikersund club 219, 219 being the hill record at Vikersund. They are a great bunch and they help to make our yearly visit special.
    Obviously the ski flying is the main event but we also do some other things on our visits.
    If you are lucky like we were on this occasion you can go cross country skiing.

    We had a nice drive to Jasna lake. The surroundings of the lake are stunning. It was a hot summer day and lots of people were enjoying ther time around. There were a quite number of restaurants in the lake vicinity with beautiful views and domestic food.
    Just to mention, during the winter the lake becomes the natural skating ring.

    Vrsic road

    To get to see it you have to drive up the steep and curvey Vrsic mountain road. But don't hasetate it is not that bad. I don't know how it would be in the winter so if planing the visit in winter time ask is the road is safe for driving. The road goes througout the beautiful nature. We stopped once to admire it and to walk around.

    Walk around

    Kranjska Gora is well atended but still peacful little town in beautiful Triglav National Park.
    It has a nice alpine look with charming houses, lovely greenery and, of course, a breathtaking views at Alp Mountines.
    For me, as I come from mediteranian coast, it had a sedative like effect. I felt like all the stress acumulated trough the last period was running out of my body. I felt sorry for not being able to stay longer but I surely will go there again and have a decent rest.

    Liznjekova house

    It is the oldest secular building in Kranjska Gora. It is about 300 years old and still looks very nice and in nice condition. That fact wouldn,t be something special if the part of the house wasn,t made from woods. Beautiful example of alpine arhitecture from those times.
    Liznjekova house is a home of etnological museum.

    Planica

    Is the alpine valley close to other two country borders; italian and austrian. It is mostly known or I should say famous for its ski flying competition in the world cup. As the biggest jumping hill it has an honour (with the jumper, of course) to hold the ski flying world record .
