SIGHTS AND ACTIVITIES

KRANJSKA GORA – MOJSTRANA

The cycling path from Mojstrana to Kranjska Gora is also known as the D2 path. It runs from Mojstrana, passing Lake Jasna, Kranjska Gora, Rateče, and back to Mojstrana. The path follows the former railway route from Mojstrana, through Kranjska Gora and into Italy, and is also named after Jure Robič. It is considered the longest path in the Gorenjska region, spanning almost 50 km. The section from Jesenice to the border crossing in Rateče covers approximately 28 km. In Rateče, you can also choose a path leading to the Belopeške Lakes.

PLANICA

The valley is best known for its ski jumping hills. In Planica, there is also the largest ski flying hill in the world, which traditionally takes place each year as the World Championship in Nordic skiing final event. It stretches from the village of Rateče to the mountain lodge, Doma v Tamarju, and from there, the valley continues under the name Tamar. The western side of Planica is bordered by the Ponc mountain range (with the highest peak, Visoka Ponca, at 2274 meters above sea level), while the eastern side is bordered by Ciprnik (1745 m) and Sleme (1815 m). In the southern part (Tamar area), Mojstrovka (2366 m), Travnik (2379 m), and Jalovec (2645 m) can be found.

LAKE JASNA

Lake Jasna is surrounded by stunning mountains. In good weather, you can see all the surrounding peaks. For this purpose, a 6-meter-high wooden tower is placed by the lake, serving as an observation point - the use of the tower is free of charge. From the top of the tower, you can even see more distant peaks of the Julian Alps. Beautiful walking paths are laid out around the lake, and the entire area is covered with small pebbles. The water is very clear, clean, and perfect for cooling off on hot days.

VRŠIČ

Vršič (1611 m) is the highest Slovenian mountain pass (also the highest in the Eastern Julian Alps) that connects Kranjska Gora with Trenta. Vršič is considered one of the important starting points for mountain tours to the peaks of Mala Mojstrovka (2332 m) and Velika Mojstrovka (2366 m), Planja (2453 m), Prisojnik (Prisank) (2547 m), Razor (2601 m), Šitna glava (2087 m), Slemenova špica (1911 m), Sovna glava (1750 m), Suhi vrh (2109 m); or for shorter walks in the nearby surroundings.

TRIGLAV NATIONAL PARK

Triglav National Park - a priceless gem of nature, is a legally protected area or national park, subject to a special nature conservation regime that is stricter than in regional parks. The park was named after Triglav, the highest Slovenian mountain, which lies almost at the center of the park. Vast and enchanting forests, deeply carved valleys, high-altitude meadows, and crystal-clear water flowing from the slopes of the highest peak, Triglav, form rivers, lakes, and streams within the park.

PRISOJNIK

Prisank, also known as Prisojnik, is a 2547 m high mountain located above the valleys of Mlinarica, Krnica, and Suha Pišnica. From the summit, where a registration box with a stamp is located, a beautiful view of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps unfolds before us.
