A TOWN ON A PROMONTORY
KRANJ IS A PICTURESQUE HISTORIC TOWN ABOVE THE CONFLUENCE OF TWO ALPINE RIVERS – THE SAVA AND KOKRA RIVERS. DUE TO ITS GEOGRAPHICAL POSITION – ON THE JUNCTION OF IMPORTANT ROUTES, LEADING FROM THE NORTHERN EUROPE TO THE ADRIATIC SEA AND FROM THE WESTERN EUROPE TOWARDS THE EASTERN EUROPE – KRANJ IS ALSO A STRONG COMMERCIAL CENTRE.
KRANJ: WATER POLO and SWIMMING
Kranj's swimming pool complex is situated in the Kranj Sports Park, together with the football stadium, track and field facilities, tennis courts, basketball courts and a skating ring.
The swimming pool area connects an outdoor and an indoor swimming pool. The complex also has other facilities such as gym, sauna, spa and solarium centers. The indoor pool will serve mainly for swimming practice and as the venue for Synchronized Swimming events.
The outdoor pool was opened in 2003 for the European Water Polo Championships and also European Masters Water Polo Championships. Between the two pools there is a sunbathing area and a children’s area with small pools and whirlpool baths. The indoor swimming pool was renovated and re-opened in 2014. In RADOVLJICA, which is a 15-minute drive away from Kranj, is an additional outdoor swimming pool. In case that swimming trainings in Kranj will not be possible on September 1, there will be trainings organized in Radovljica, with shuttle transportation organized from Bled and Kranj.
Kranj swimming pool is considered as one of the most beautiful facilities in this part of Europe. The indoor and outdoor Olympic swimming pools are directly connected; both have ten lanes and a great deal of room for competitors.
