Prešeren's fair in Kranj

On 8th of February Kranj will once again feel the atmosphere of 19th century. With big fair offer and diverse cultural program we will pay a tribute to France Prešeren, one of the biggest slovenian poets who lived in Kranj. Many folklore groups, cultural associations and institutions from all over Slovenia are involved in organisation of this big event, as are the administrators of ethnological heritage including the Gorenjska Museum, the Kranj Municipal Library, the Prešeren Award Winners Gallery and the Prešeren Theatre.  For several years now, we can talk about surpluses of both the number of performers as well as visitors who experience time of France Prešeren in Kranj on this day. Visit Kranj on the 8th of February for the whole 19th century experience. 

If you are coming from far away, you can sleep in Hostel Kranj which has a great offer for a reasonable price.
