2.) SHOPS, RESTAURANTS, AND BARS

Mercator shop is located in the center of Kranjska Gora – 5 minutes by car from Podkoren. There are actually two Mercator shops in Kranjska Gora. The closest major shopping center is in the city of Jesenice.

Kranjska Gora and its surroundings offer quite a few restaurants. So here, we can find many restaurants with local offers, pizzerias, mountain huts, and log cabins. In principle, there is something for everyone, but the emphasis is still on meat and meat dishes.

There is only one restaurant in the village Podkoren – Hotel & Restaurant Vitranc, which is famous for its traditional Serbian grilled food.

3.) CYCLE ROUTES

In Kranjska Gora many rent trekking, mountain or electric bikes: Intersport Bernik, Bike Kekec, Sporti Bar JB Center, Koflersport, … Some also organize guided tours.

Kranjska Gora is connected to the city Jesenice, village Mojstrana, Podkoren, and other villages by a well-maintained bicycle path. For example, in Podkoren, you join the bicycle trail at the Podkoren ski resort. But if you don’t have your bike, you can only rent one in Kranjska Gora.

Otherwise, you can also go on a cycling trip to the Italian border and further into Italy. Or you can turn to Vršič, the Tamar Valley, and peak Tromeja. It depends on your wishes and capabilities.

5.) MOUNTAIN PEAKS AND VALLEYS

– VALLEYS: Tamar, Krnica, Kot, Krma, and Vrata. The Vrata valley is most visited, where an asphalt road also leads, but the parking lot fills up very quickly! In this case, you can only see the Vrata valley on foot, by bicycle, or by public bus. Parking outside the designated parking spaces is strictly prohibited, and you may be fined.

– EASY MARKED AND UNMARKED ROUTES: Tromeja, Slemenova Špica, Visoki Mavrinc, Dovška Baba, Ciprnik, Trupejevo Poldne, Vošca, Golica, Vršič, … These are more accessible marked or unmarked routes, which are also suitable for children and puppies.

– DIFFICULT MARKED ROUTES: Prisojnik, Razor, Škrlatica, Triglav, Mala Mojstrovka, Bovški Gamsovec, Jalovec, Rjavina, Cmir, … These are all very demanding tours for only those with experience. Triglav is indeed the highest Slovenian peak, extremely tempting and well secured with wedges and steel cables, but it should not be underestimated under any circumstances. Good luck!

You can also read more detailed information about specific trips and routes in the blog.
