    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 .

    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

    by stanian Updated Apr 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    This is stunning it is hard to take a bad photo here!

    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".

    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 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.

    Ski jumpers vs. female soccer team

    by Nykaenen Updated Dec 29, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
