Things to Do in Kranjska Gora Slovenia

Chances are you have already heard about the green pocket-size capital city of Slovenia - Ljubljana, or world-famous Lake Bled, one of the most picturesque spots in Slovenia.

If you are looking to escape from the city life and popular tourist hot-spots, visit one of Slovenia's most famous Alpine villages - Kranjska Gora - instead.

Where is Kranjska Gora?

Kranjska Gora is a ski resort located in the northwestern corner of Slovenia, on the edge of mountains and glacial lakes of Triglav National Park.

Kranjska Gora is located about one hour drive from the capital Ljubljana and 50 minutes drive from Slovenia's main airport.

The idyllic Alpine town is connected with the capital city and surrounding areas with local buses, making it easily accessible for a day trip as well.

What to do in Kranjska Gora? (besides skiing)

There is plenty to do and see in Kranjska Gora in any season. And you can also walk (almost) everywhere! If you are not keen on walking then everything is easily accessible by car or decently connected with local public transportation.

1. Explore town's city centre & Alpine Village

Taken straight out of a fairytale, this alpine village is full of stalls selling souvenirs and local delicacies.

2. Hotel Špik Alpine Wellness Resort

Treat yourself to a spa day in the neighbouring village Gozd Martuljek (easily accessible by bus or a long walk).

This four-star wellness resort consists of alpine themed rooms for relaxation and recharge, the world of saunas, beauty centre and indoor pools with one of the most stunning views on the snow-covered mountains.

3. Lake Jasna

This stunning Alpine lake with several very photogenic spots is located just 2 kilometres from Kranjska Gora and easily accessible by foot.

If you are visiting in the summer - bring your swimsuits! If not, walk around the lake and admire scenic views on the mountains and relax in one of the surrounding lakefront cafes.

Tip: Vila Triglav offers a beautiful view on the lake from their outdoor terrace. Their cafe is usually open to the public.

4. Zelenci Nature Reserve

About an hour walk or 5 minutes by car from the centre of Kranjska Gora, you can admire the beautiful Zelenci Nature Reserve with its mesmerizing emerald-coloured lake.
