Kranj is the capital of the Gorenjska region, and is also the fourth largest city in Slovenia. It’s a short 20 minutes drive from the Bled area.
The old town of Kranj, historically also named Carnium, Creina, Chreina, or Krainburg, has one of the most spectacular medieval skylines that you’ll likely ever see, with its three distinct church towers and an unreal backdrop of the Slovenian Alps rising up only a few miles to the north. There are several shopping centres in Kranj, but the main draw for most tourists and daytrippers is Kranj’s historic centre. Protected as a national cultural monument since 1983, the lively old town boasts a variety of diverse sights, from religious monuments and ethnological museums to modern arts spaces and unique remnants from World War II (the tunnels under the old town Kranj).
