    Beautiful Vrsic Pass Road

    by Roeffie Written Jul 16, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    De Vršič-pas with it's height of 1611 meter is the highest Pass of Slovenia. Road 206 goes over the pass towards Bovec. The origin of the road dates back to WW I, when russian warprisoners laid out the military road across the pass. It counts over 50 hair pins.

    At the pass height

    Op een hoogte van 1620 meter ligt de berghut Tičarjev a Dom. Hier begint een wandelroute van circa 15-20 minuten naar de berghut Postarski Dom op 1688 meter. Van hieruit is een mooi uitzicht op de 2547 m. hoge Prisojnik. Ter hoogte van de achtste haarspeldbocht staat een Russische kapel. Verderop is het standbeeld van Julius Kugy. Voorbij de Vršič-pas is de rivier de Soča.

    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.

    Liznjekova house

    by vesna04 Updated Aug 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 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.

    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.

    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!

    by Treeman28 Written May 26, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.

    KOCA V KRNICI 1113 m

    by eden_teuling Written Jul 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    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.
