    Liznjekova house

    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.

    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.

    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

    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".

    Climb Ciprnik!

    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.

    CHURCH OF ASSUMPTION OF THE VIRGIN MARY

    by balhannah Written Oct 16, 2011

    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.

    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.

    OPEN....

    The church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary

    The church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary is situated in the centre of Kranjska Gora.
    Originally called the church of Mary at Beli prod, only the bell tower remains from the original church.
    The current church dates back to 1510.

    Several small stalls are set up in the square around the church selling very thing from crystals to honey to T Shirts.

    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 !!!

    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...

    RUSKA KAPELICA = THE RUSSIAN CHAPEL

    by eden_teuling Written Jul 12, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE RUSSIAN CHAPEL

    During the First World War (1914 - 1918) Kranjska Gora was an important military crossroads.

    The Vrsic pass had to be kept open throughout the winter......

    The road had to be cleared and the road was cleared and cleaned of enormous quantities of snow.
    This hard work had to be done by Russian POWs (Prisoners of War) under the supervision of Austrian soldiers.

    On 12th March 1916, bells began to ring in Kranjska Gora......sad news arrived from Vrsic: a huge wnowslide had buries the Russian Camp below Vrsic, killing more than 300 prisoners and 10 guards.

    In memory of these men, The Russian Chapel was built along the path to Vrsic...

    This monument is only a 100 mts. from the road and there is a sign......I would advise you to take some time to go there and say a prayer for those victims.

    PRELAZ VRSIC 1611 m.

    by eden_teuling Written Jul 13, 2003

    VRSIC PASS 1611 m.

    This was funny! We drove a certain route and decided to have our packed lunch at the highest point.

    There were spot enough to park the car and we were not the only ones who had lunch there.....

    But after some 10 minutes someone with a mountain bike I had already seen on the opposite side of the road came up to us, which I thought strange.

    We had to pay!!! for being there!! Well of course we did when it seemed clear that it was his job to let people who stopped there car there on top, pay!
    And this card he gave me made it clear:

    It says: NOTICE TO VISITORS...

    TYhe Vrsic Mountain Pass 1611 meters (and remember I told you in the first tip who built this road......poor souls!) is the highest point on the Vrsic road, the ONLY ROUTE THROUGH THE TRIGLAV NATIONAL PARK.

    Every year traffic congestion grows worse and protected nature is threatened more and more...

    Only your consideration will help us preserve the natural beauty of Vrsic. We are asking visitors to enjoy its wonders ON FOOT, in peace and silence.
    Try to leave your cars in the Valley and walk or take the bus up to the pass.

    Transit through the pass is free, but those STOPPING or PARKING at Vrsic are requested to make a contribution towards the maintenance of car parks and progressive traffic control.

    Thank you
    the Municipality of Bovec
    the Municipality of Kranjska Gora

    But we got this NOTE while standing there!!
    Had we known we would have walked up, not for the little money we had to pay but to help protect the Park.....

    It was just a normal road......well, next time!

    THIS IS ZLATOROG

    by eden_teuling Written Jul 13, 2003

    ZLATOROG.....

    The legendary rock-goat (chamois?) with the gold horns, who was the keeper of a treasure hidden in the Mountains.

    A greedy hunter killed him, shot him between the horns.
    But......out of the blood on the soil a flower grew and with his last strength Zlatorog managed to eat the flower and.....could get up but....disappeared, never to come back!
    But before disappearing he killed the hunter, destroyed the meadows and from that moment he was immortal!

    Here he is at the entrance of the TRIGLAV NATIONAL PARK, to protect it and the still hidden treasure!

    Have a drink, an ice-cream or some crêpes at the Jasna restaurant, because it is there, near JASNA LAKE that this huge sculpture is located....

    AJDOVSKA DEKLICA......

    AJDOVSKA DEKLICA

    Her name means: BUCKWHEAT GIRL....

    Clearly visible in the wall above the Vrsic Pass is the face of a young girl names "Ajdovska deklica".
    Ajdovska or "jeda" women ("jeda is the local name for buckwheat) predicted the fate of newborns in Kranjska Gora and advised farmers when to sow and harvest their crops.

    One of them, Ajdovska deklica, predicted to the son of a hunter that he would shoot a goldenhorn, which lived in the surrounding mountains.

    This prediction angered the other ajdovska women, who changed the Ajdovsks deklica into stone.........and I have seen her.....
