Some facts about the location.

Kranjska Gora is a small but lively Alpine town in northwestern Slovenia. It lays in a lovely mountain setting between Austria and Italy. It is also a popular base for all outdoor sports lovers. During the summer months, hiking and biking are the most popular. In winter, Kranjska Gora turns into a popular family ski resort.

The town has all of the amenities that you need in a modern resort. There are supermarkets, bank, post office, well-equipped medical center, tourist information office, and several sports shops. Numerous bars and restaurants are located in the city old center. Although there are several large hotels in the area, the village center retains its own identity. For a bike trip away, you can also visit the world-famous ski jumps in Planica or a spectacular waterfall in Mojstrana. The possibilities around here are neverending!
