GOOD WILL IS THE BEST

The image of  the most famous Slovenian ski resort with the Julian Alps in the background is in the heart of all Slovenian active skiers. Many people have made their first steps on the snow on these ski slopes. Kranjska Gora is a worldwide brand known as the traditional Slovenian winter ski resort, which also offers a lot in the summer season too and is increasingly establishing itself as a congress and incentive destination.

Today, Kranjska Gora builds its image on sustainable natural development as well as on quality year-round tourist facilities.

DID YOU KNOW?
“There is nothing more beautiful in Europe than this,” wrote Sir Humphry Davy about the beauties of the Sava Valley with its waterfalls and lakes.
kranjska gora

Kranjska Gora is in the winter season primarily a sports and recreation centre. In the summer season it is more a destination for trekking, relaxation and the congress industry, which is the only year round activity in the area. It seems that with the arrival of a new hotel manager, the place has received a new impetus for the further development of congress tourism. Conditions for smaller conferences are already excellent and with a wide range of casino offer and incentive programmes satisfies the basic needs. In Kranjska Gora you will not find city streets with boutiques offering ski equipment, cafés and restaurants. This is something you should not look for when coming to Kranjska Gora. Instead, however, you will be greeted by beautiful scenery and plenty of authenticity along with genuine congress experiences.

WHAT'S HOT IN 2016

Updating one of the most beautiful jump centres in the world is in full swing. The location is already the basis for the widespread congressional offer of destination. 100.000 m2 of new space for sports (7 ski jumps with all the accompanying infrastructure)

An integrated GPS system enables them to discover the Upper Sava Valley, its cultural and natural heritage, cuisine and other attractions in Slovene, English, German and Italian. The trail includes more than 10 most attractive sights of the Kranjska Gora tourist destination.

If you follow the via ferratas, you will reach the summit of the Grančišče hill, offering breath-taking views over the nearby Julian Alps and the Karavanke mountain range.

COMPARISION WITH THE REGION

The most important winter sports centre in Slovenia has among the Slovenian ski resorts the strongest brand, which is known worldwide mainly due to the Cup Vitranc. It has stayed n the company of places like Kitzbuhel, Cortina, Garmisch and Wengen for many years. In recent years, Kranjska Gora successfully defied the green winters and economic hardship of key hoteliers. Slowly and steadily it has also developed a summer tourist offer, which enables the development of congress tourism. Both seasons are now virtually in balance. With the latest changes in the field of hospitality it will surely strengthen its position as an important centre for the implementation of incentive programmes and small conferences. Due to the recognition of the ski jumps in Planica and Vitranc Cup it has a high priority over other rivals in the region. It is an important boutique congress destination for quality mid-size corporate events up to 350 participants.
