Medieval Charm … Kranj, Slovenia


Last September we spent a couple of hours in the historic medieval centre of Slovenia’s fourth largest city, Kranj.

Located approximately 20 kms northwest of the capital, Ljubljana, Kranj, with a population of 54,000, is mainly an industrial city with significant electronics and rubber industries. It’s also well known for its modern sports facilities, including the largest aquatic centre in the country.

But my interest, as a traveller, lay only in its medieval core where antiquity lay a path for my romantic imagination to wander.

Please enjoy these images and, if you get the chance, pay a visit one day. It’s quite charming.

The more windows you had the more taxes you paid. …

Thanks for visiting …

  1. Nice article. 🙂 I really love you like my country, but photos from this charming little town are from Škofja Loka, not Kranj. Btw, like your photos. 🙂

    • Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment … We visited so many towns that day it’s possible I got mixed up. Thanks for clarifying this for me and liking the images … Be well, Dorothy 🙂
