    It’s this mountain backdrop that gave Kranj the name ‘capital of the Slovenian Alps’. The Alps are truly close to this town; you’ll need less than an hour to reach the closest mountain. If you love hiking in the mountains, we recommend the 2132-metre-high Mt Storžič.


    Two rivers surrounding Kranj give the town its strong character. The River Kokra created a 30-metre-deep canyon beneath the town, which is worth seeing. The River Sava flows on the other side of the town, and its area is a true paradise for fishing and fly fishing.

    Active experiences in Kranj

    You’ll be hard-pressed to find a local from Kranj who does not do any winter sports. The closest winter activity to the town is cross-country skiing. The Krvavec Ski Centre is also not far; it provides a wide range of winter (and summer) activities.


    As Kranj is the capital of Alpine Slovenia, it of course has many hiking options. If you’d like to enjoy a photo safari, go to Jamnik; you can also take a lot of photos in the picturesque canyon of the River Kokra.


    There are also a lot of cycling trails. At the Britof Sports Park, you can put your cycling skills to the test on a pump track covering 800 square metres. It’s suitable for cyclists, skateboarders, and scooter lovers.
