The Gorenjska region
The north-western part of Slovenia is Alpine and is known as Gorenjska. For centuries, it has been the most developed Slovenian region, with the longest tradition in tourism. It boasts several towns with beautiful historic centres, such as Škofja Loka, Radovljica, Kranj, Kamnik and Tržic.
Kropa and Kamna gorica were centres of iron forging, nail-making and blacksmithing, while the ironworks at Jesenice, the region’s largest, date from more recent times. The town of Jesenice is also the cradle of Slovenian ice-hockey.
Gorenjska is synonymous with winter sports. Numerous ski resorts and the world-famous ski-jumping hills at Planica are all essential elements of the region’s winter image. Bled, Bohinj and Kranjska Gora have for many years been among the most popular Slovenian tourist destinations.
The town of Kranj, the industrial and business hub of Gorenjska, is the seat of many successful companies.
Podkoren is one of Slovenia's prettiest mountain villages with pretty alpine architecture set around a lovely square just 2km from Kranjska Gora, Slovenia's best known mountain resort and in walking distance to the Kranjska Gora World Cup ski pistes.
On the border with Austria & Italy, Kranjska Gora is the most famous mountain resort in Slovenia. The skiing is the main draw for many people – Kranjska Gora is a superb resort for families and beginner – intermediate level skiers, with pistes easily accessible from the village. But with stunning mountain scenery, great access to the Triglav National park and a host of Summer and Winter outdoor pursuits (walking, mountain biking, horse riding, cross country skiing, mountaineering & ice skating) it remains very popular all year round. The town itself is a pretty alpine affair, very family friendly, with lots of lively restaurants, bars and a couple of swimming pools / spas. Around Kranjska Gora are a number of extremely pretty villages (including Podkoren, Ratece, Mojstrana, Dovje) in idyllic mountain surroundings.
