KRANJ, A TOWN ON A PROMONTORY
VENUE FOR WATER POLO AND SWIMMING
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.
SWIMMING POOL COMPLEX
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.
Kranj swimming pool complex 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. The complex also has other facilities such as gym, sauna, spa and solarium centers.
The indoor pool, which was renovated in 2014, will serve mainly for swimming practices 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.
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 1 September 2018, there will be trainings organized in Radovljica, with shuttle transportation organized from Bled and Kranj.
