Jesenice - special in many ways

During your stay at the Bledec hostel in Bled or the Hostel Barovc in Kranjska Gora, you will be just a stone's throw away from our city.

Jesenice, the city of steel and daffodils, is special in many ways. The steel produced in these parts can be found in the Eiffel Tower, in the accelerator at Cern, and some of it even sunk along with the Titanic. The museum part of the city and the historic iron foundry district of Jesenice, Stara Sava, now flourishes with a rich tradition of iron working. The iron working facilities and the redesigned main square are becoming a new space for social events. The roundabout on the way to Stara Sava showcases a statue of an iron worker, a symbol of the city's history.

Treat yourself to a tour of the iron working collection with movable models, or the reconstruction of a 1930s worker's apartment. Here, time stands still. Of course, you are very welcome to walk over the pedestrian bridge, which is designed as a connection to the café, theatre, and the presently more bourgeois part of Jesenice.

A stop at Tone Čufar square, a view of Jesenice Grammar School with its distinctive façade, or perhaps a walk through the main promenade up to the old district of Murova. In our city, you can experience all this in just one afternoon. Also, do not forget the wonderful walk above the city. You will surely be making several stops along the scenic route. Not due to fatigue, mind you, as the path is quite easy. But you will be fascinated by the beautiful sights looking towards Dolina, or in the direction of Žirovnica.

For more adventurous guests, there is also a hike along the Old Mine route, or a trip to Golica.
