    LAKE JASNA

    by novsco61 Updated Jun 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Lake Jasna is situated just a short stroll from the centre of Kranjska gora . Surrounded by beautiful Julian Alps, it offers many possibilities : walk around the lake, bathing, fishing...

    Josip Vandot

    A native, a Slovene youth novelist, the author of The Adventures of Kekec once said:

    »The Jasna baths are indeed unique and none of other baths cannot be compared with it. Not only for its natural position. It is constructed in a romatic flat land, encircled by fragrant pine woods and the rocky mountains, raising before and above them, all crisscrossed by perpetual snow. The sun fixes its rays directly into it and the mountains shelter it from a cold wind. A man simply cannot believe that he is indeed up high in the mountains; the snow on the walls in front of him smiles at him and tells him that he is neither mistaken nor dreaming, but only experiencing reality. The lively view of the baths is really peculiar and one would beat the air walking around the world in order to find a similar one.«

    THE CHURCH

    by novsco61 Updated May 27, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    It was built in honour of the Virgin Mary and was called the church of Mary at Beli prod. Only the bell tower, built from sandy blocks in Romanesque style remains from the original church.

    The existing church dates back to the late Gothic period and was built in 1510 by master builder Jernej Firtaler from Villach. A certain Carinthian influence is evident mainly in the nave vault, which is supported by internal pillars and decorated with a web of ribs which makes it one of the most interesting of its kind in Slovenia.

    RIVER PIŠNICA

    by novsco61 Updated May 27, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Mala Pišnica - 1.15 hours' walk from lake Jasna

    Is an alpine valley 5 km long, passable just by taking some non-marked hunter's tracks; it is preserved as a natural reserve in the Triglav national park. In the upper part of Mala Pišnica one of the biggest larches in Slovenia can be found. As the tracks are steep, the walking boots are recommended.

    Bled in late winter

    This is stunning
    1 more image

    Bled in late winter is a must, the lake, the Castle, the Churches.
    A walk round the lake is about 6km and takes about 2 hrs depending on how many times you stop to admire the views. Then there is the castle, Walk past the church of St Martin and turn left , follow signs Blejski Grad, zigzag up for about 100m and you are there simple.
    Views from the castle are breathtaking on a clear day and by this time you are ready for a snack and a beer what a place to have it.

    Velikanka

    Kladim se da medju publikom koja posjecuje ovakve tekme ima dosta onih krvozednih koji ocekuju da netko od takmicara debelo fula. Gledao sam neka lica dok ovi decki lete i uvjeren sam da je tome tako. Na svu srecu, danas nije bilo "padavina".

    Velikanka ali nesto blize

    Buduci da je put iz Zagreba potrajao, naravno trebalo je opskrbiti gorivom aute ali i zedna grla, to smo dosli upravo izmedju dvije tekme. Nekakva skvadra je popravljala nizbrdicu, a ja zapravo ne kuzim kaj se tu ima popravljati kad decki tak i tak prek' toga prelijecu osim onih pacera koji mjesto letova prakticiraju spust.

    vELIKANKA

    Velikanka zaista djeluje impozantno ali jednako tako i zastrasujuce. Vec izdaleko se moze zamjetiti da je skakaonica vrlo velikih razmjera no medjutim, kada se pridje blize taj se dojam jos visestruko pajacava. Obicnom covjeku je zapravo nezamislivo da bi se bilo tko ufao sunovratiti niz takvu konstrukciju.

    Coffee time in Bled with friends

    i went at night, which meant i could not see much, but the walk around the lake with new friends was terrific. Go in the daylight and visit the church in the middle of the lake.
    if the lake is frozen, walk across the ice, take a chance, your on holiday Man !!!

    Ski jumpers vs. female soccer team

    by Nykaenen Updated Dec 29, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Boys vs. girls

    In 2001 there was a soccer game between ski jumpers and one Slovene female team. The female team were actually teenage girls, but most of the jumpers were quite young as well so in that respect it was a fair match. In everything else it was like David vs. Goliath.
    Poor girls--they played on the team for 3 or 4 years, yet their skills with the ball were so poor that jumpers, who play soccer only for fun, looked like professional soccer players! While girls struggled, boys enjoyed themselves enormously--for many of them these were probably the only close encounters with the opposite sex ;-))
    (Dieter Thoma, famous German ski jumper, accepting a statue of a woman as an award for the German team, said that he was sorry M. Schmitt and S. Hannavald were not there so they could finally hold a woman.)

    Similar match was organized in 2003 as well, but was not as attractive.

    Meet your favorite ski jumpers!

    by Nykaenen Updated Dec 29, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nykaenen, Risto, Jasmina

    Ski jumpers are still not paid in millions of Euros and that's probably why you can meet them pretty easily. All it takes is to walk around, go for coffee or in my case, go to a disco.
    This is Jasmina & and me with my favorite Finnish jumper Risto Jussilainen. We saw him on the street on our way to disco and he immediately agreed to a photo session! Just for the record, in 2001 Risto finished overall 3rd in the world cup; in Planica he & his teammates won the team competition and he placed 2nd in the individual competition.
    We met several other jumpers including Adam Malysz & Andi Goldberger and could have taken pics of them, but we did not want to be pushy. Risto was our favorite and a pic of him was enough!!!

    Fans! Polish fans!

    by Nykaenen Updated Dec 29, 2003

    Crazy Polish fans

    Adam Malysz captured the overall world cup title three times in a row! Ever since he started winning, Polish people follow him around in tens of thousands!
    When they come, the competition can be anything but boring. Trust my word - these people know how to make great atmosphere!

    My fondest memory of Polish fans is from 2001 when they came with flags and banners of all shapes and sizes displaying some of the craziest wording I've ever seen:
    1. Adam - 500 m!
    2. Adam for President!
    3. Adam flies high - Adam come down to Earth!
    If only I had better camera at the time to capture their masterpieces of paraphernalia. You cannot even imagine what crazy fans can come up with!

    Photo: when the competition was over, a friend and I were "surrounded" by a group of merry Polish fans :-)

    Ski Flying

    by Nykaenen Updated Dec 29, 2003

    Ski flying 2002

    For many years now the last competitions of the ski jumping world cup take place in Planica. Usually, they take place the one but last weekend in March and usually there are three competitions - team competition on Friday and two individual competitions on Saturday and Sunday. Competitions start at 10 am as they have to be completed before 1 pm when the wind begins. The wind is so regular that you can bet your money on it!

    Planica gained fame much before it became the last stage of the ski jumping circus due to numerous world records. The first jump over 100 m happened there. Andreas Goldberger set his world record of 225 m also there. Matti Hautamaeki broke that record in 2003 during the team competition only to improve it twice in individual competitions the following days.
    So many of world longest jumps/flights were achieved there that Planica became the synonym for spectacular flights and fans expect new records every year.

    KOCA V KRNICI 1113 m

    STAMP

    There are several huts in the mountains and you can decide to walk to one of them when you set out!

    This day it was a walk to the Koca (hut) Krnici and believe me it was not that easy!
    Ever crossed an extremely rock-filled riverbed under the hot sun and temps of some 30 degr. Celsius??

    But I liked it, it was great fun!

    Reaching the Koca you can have a drink there, hot or cold and rest in the shade of some wonderful trees that spread their branches extra wide it seems to offer us all as much shade as possible.

    There were even some people who arrived by bike!

    Perhaps a bit childish: but I enjoyed getting the stamp as 'EVIDENCE' that I had walked up, after which there still was the walk down.....lolol.....all went well and it was a well-spend day!

    I have to showe you the stamp! and I have a few more......from higher up in the mountains...
