    The town is accessable by car, by bus or by train. Highway Ljubljana - Naklo goes pass Kranj by its North-East corner. If you're coming from Ljubljana, a motorway is also a good choise. The rails connections are pretty rare, so bus or car are better solution.
    The Airport Brnik - Aerodrom Ljubljana, stands 7 km East from Kranj.
