SLOVENIA, the green garden of EUROPE.


The picturesque country of Slovenia invites everyone to indulge in the beautiful landscape, the good wine and culinary delights. A variety of outdoor activities are within reach, just an hour drive from the capital and one and a half hour’s drive from Bled.
You can set out to discover the underground Karst world in the numerous caves, take a boat ride at the seaside or on the rivers or lakes. Discover the countryside riding a white Lipizzaner horse; set out into the mountains on a bicycle or hike; taste the wines, and descend the snow-covered slopes on skis or play golf with friends.

Let us take you through Kranj or it's underground, walk you through the streets of Ljubljana or guide you on the Coast. And that is only to name a few...

 

Kranj is the cultural heart of Slovenia. The charming old town with six thousand years of history is perfect for visitors wanting to explore its rich heritage and youthful lively events and culinary surprises. In the embrace of the mountains and green surroundings, Kranj is also the central town of the Slovenian Alpine region.

 

We invite to take a break during the competitions and get to know Kranj, a town perched on a rock that will offer you an unforgettable experience.

 

The Tunnels under the Old Town Kranj

 

Under the Old Town there are 1,300 m of long tunnels that were used as a bunker about 70 years ago, but now have been transformed into an attractive tourist attraction. They are full of stories from the time of World War II and have a reconstruction of a war shelter and a simulation experience of an aircraft attack. You can also see real stalactites and cave-dwelling animals inside. We have prepared a tasting of the famous local culinary tandem for you in the tunnels, that is the Kranj sausage, which has been the recipient of a gold medal for several consecutive years, and Kranj beer from a local microbrewery.
