Kranskja Gora is a mountain area located northwest in Slovenia, very close to both the Italian and Austrian border. The area is famous for skiing, both as a popular winter holiday destination and for hosting international sport competitions every year, for example the World Cup in alpine. During the summer, the place pretty quiet, despite the amazing hiking and biking opportunities in the area.
Vrsic Pass is a mountain pass going across the Julian Alps, with the highest point at 1611m above sea level. Visiting Vrsic was the main reason we went to Kranskja Gora, as it offers an impressive view and great hiking trails.
Currently, I am on a road trip in Slovenia. In total, we only have eight days in Slovenia, but we will manage to see a lot of the country, as it is very small (but it still has a lot to offer!). Slovenia must be the perfect country for an interesting holiday. Slovenia has mountains, beaches, historical buildings and architecture, great food, shopping, wine yards, extreme sports – and so on.
As you may noticed in my previous post about the Cuban city Trinidad, it is an extremely beautiful and colorful city. One of the most beautiful moments we had in Trinidad was when we watched the sunset over the city.
St. Francis Church is a yellow church with a tall bell tower, located right next to Plaza Mayor. If you don’t know where you are (you will get confused walking around in all the small streets), you can just look for the tower and locate after that. It is a must to go up in the bell tower to enjoy the view of the city. We did it at sunset, and it was amazing! I think we paid 1 CUC or something, and it was not too crowded either.
