Beautiful natural surroundings, Friendly genuine people great food & Drink and too many others too mention.
i went alone and came back with many friends
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...more
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!...more
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...more
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...more
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...more
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...more
Anyone who is going to Kranjska Gora has to book and stay here! You pay about 35 Euros per night,...more

Papa Joe's does not need too much introduction, it's famous.The menu is wide and varied and the food is good, again the portions are large and the staff are very friendly.You can sit inside or out and get fed and watered until you need new trousers.Sadly Papa Joe is no more in Kranjska gora, but in case you didn't know you can still get the same...more
Kurenti, the local attractions and VTmembers from Zagreb - Croatia, s-e-n-i, and nykaenen, both ski-jumping freaks. Planica definitivno nije mjesto na koje je preporucljivo voditi "klince", a posebno ne one koji se nadobudno deklariraju kao ba?dareni pivopije. Borme? kosi li ta piva kosi, ?e?ce nego li sablja Nikole Subica Zrinskog.Ah da, dragi...more
Buses around the area are very good, but sometimes people get confused about where they are going.As a general rule they have a sign in the window, the first place name is where the bus has come from, the centre name, if there is one, is where the bus goes via and finally the last name is where the bus goes to.eg. Ratece - Jesenice - Ljubljana....more
From the UK try flying Ryanair from Stansted to Klagenfurt then a short bus No 40/42 to Klagenfurt Annabichl or Hauptbahnhof. A train to Jesenice Via Villach or Rosenbach then bus to KG. Also Easyjet from Stansted to Ljubljana. Buses from Ljubljana Brnik go via Kranj, change bus at Kranj then catch bus that says Ratece Planica on the right hand of...more
Don't miss that bus, some local buses around some of Slovenia now sometimes have a tendancy not to stop at bus stops.I had just returned from my 7th visit and I missed 2 buses.(never missed one before)The first was an Alpetour bus missed at Begunje, we wanted to go back to Kranjska Gora via Jesenice, it was hot so we were waiting in the wooden bus...more

Luggage and bags:
pack out your ski bag with outdoor clothes and boots etc, saving space for items to take home with you.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Normal clothes for night time, the streets and pavements are kept ice free
Photo Equipment: digital camera is a must these days, canon ixus 2 ( £199.00) is brilliant.
The small Village church in Podkoren, was completed in 1859, and is known as St. Andrew's Church.We drove into this Village, that dates back to the Early Middle Ages, especially to see the Church.Bad luck for us, the Church door was closed. We did manage to see the old outside frescoes, that have been painted during different era's.If you are...more
In the martuljek mountain range there are waterfalls to see. The walk to the 30m high lower falls is quite easy but a little slippery in places.The view from the field before you enter the National park boundry is worth a visit in itself, It is hard to imagine a way thorough to the falls from here. One warning, if it should start to rain...more
Take a trip to Begunje, you won't regret it,it is an easy trip by local bus. Catch the Ljubliana bus and change at Radovljica.Visit the ruins of Grad Kamen A few films have been made here Jackie Chan's Armour of god started here and also the Disney film Condor man starring Michel Crawford, the Church of St Peter and the Hostages Museum at the rear...more
Hiking is one of the most popular forms of enjoying an active holiday. I can recommend a trip to the Triglav valleys of Vrata, Kot and Krma. Stretching from Mojstrana to the foothills and then on to the summit of Triglav (2864metres), Slovenia’s highest mountain. Situated in the Zgornjesavska valley and in the four small adjoining valleys of...more
Ski lifts and runs are located on the slopes of Vitranc all the way from Kranjska Gora right down to Planica from an altitude of 1215 to 800 metres above the sea level. Ski runs are linked with a system of 5 chairlifts and 14 ski tows including the new four-chaired Dolencev rut lift.Ski lifts are located in Gozd-Martuljek, Kranjska Gora, Podkoren...more
Krnica Valley - 1.45 hours' walk The Velika Pišnica Valley is surrounded by the peaks, all of them two-thousand metre high. It can be reached by taking a narrow cart track which leads us to the Krnica Valley. There is the Krnica cottage (1113m) at the foot of the magnificent rock walls of Prisank, Razor and Škrlatica.Vršic - 2.30 hours' walk The...more
The beer in Slovenia is very good, but if you just ask for a beer, most often you will get a Svetlo Union pronounced onion or a Laško Zlatorog, pronounced lashko both of these beers are very good, but if you like a other types of beer or stout their are some very nice ones from both breweries. Union have Èrni Baron, Smile, with lemon, Union pils...more
What I mean by "early" is early morning or early in the year, without the crowds KG can be a different place, try it sometime. I can't name one most important thing as all of KG is important to me. The one scenic view I think that should not be missed though is the Martuljek mountain range from the meadows near Srednji vrh. I miss the friendly...more
Do not change your hard earned into Euros before you leave the UK, the rate that you get will not be anywhere near the rate you will get in Kranjska gora.For example Lloyds tsb on 30/11/07 were offering 1.341 to the pound and SKB in Kranjska gora were offering 1.41 so for every 100 pounds exchanged at Lloyds you lose 7 Euros converted back to UK...more
Many of us have seen photographs of an island with a church in the middle of a pristine Alpine lake, but few of us are very familiar with Slovenia. While initial assumptions might suggest Austria or Germany, this image is in fact Bled in the Gorenjska region of Northern Slovenia. Bordering Austria and Italy, Northern Slovenia and the Julian Alps are a growing skiing destination, but also a great destination for those who simply appreciate unspoiled nature. Triglav National Park, home to Mount Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain, is also Slovenia's only national park and one of the oldest protected parks in Europe. Hiking is a popular way to explore the park and see Lake Bohinj, Slovenia's largest glacial lake. To the north of Mount Triglav, Kranjska Gora provides opportunities for skiing, hiking, and night tobogganing. In addition to the physical activities, Kranjska Gora also has a casino and hot springs for when visitors want to relax. VirtualTourist members also recommend an excursion to see the country's capital, Ljubljana, with a walk around the Old Town and a visit to the Ljubljana Castle. Since the country has historically been controlled by Italy, the Austrian empire, and was also part of Yugoslavia, the culture and cuisine are an interesting mix of Central Europe, Balkan, and Mediterranean traditions.
