Kranjska Gora in winter

Discover the treasure trove of the Upper Sava Valley the heart of which is Kranjska Gora. Let your adventure begin here! 

Two events contributed to the development of Kranjska Gora from a herdsmen’s settlement in the 14th century to today's cosmopolitan Alpine village. The first turning point was the construction of the road through the Vršič mountain pass and the subsequent strategic importance of Kranjska Gora. The second turning point was the construction of the railway and the subsequent construction of the Planica ski jump

Record ski jumps in Planica turned it into a tourist resort. On the slopes of Vitranc, the first cableways were constructed. This was followed by summer sledding, climbing walls, gorgeous hotels, lovely apartments, interesting museums, ethnographic events, lively parties, etc. There is always something going on in Kranjska Gora. Here, the adventure of discovering the Upper Sava Valley begins, and never ends!

The white fairy-tale of the Zgornjesavska valley offers the possibility of countless adventures. Skiers and snowboarders will find their challenge on the snow-covered slopes, while others can find their recreation on the well-kept cross-country tracks or by sledding on toboggan runs. Climbing a frozen waterfall, day and night snowshoeing, hikes with torches are an unforgettable experience.

The Upper Sava Valley is known for its excellent cuisine, allowing you to pamper yourself in many traditional inns. In addition to the typical international or even global cuisine, it is essential that you also try the typical homemade dishes of individual villages. 

It is due to the Alpine ski world cup Vitranc (14.03. – 15.03.2015) that the winter resort of Kranjska Gora has become so famous far, far away from our borders. Every winter the steep slopes of Vitranc are the venue for slalom and giant slalom competitions where top skiers from all over the world compete against time and against each other. In addition to the skiing competition, visitors can enjoy the concerts and animations organized as part of the Q Max Party event (14.03.2015).

In addition to the competition, visitors can enjoy the concerts and animations organized as part of the Open Air Planica event (21.03.2015).
