A fairytale stroll through the festively decorated old town of Kranj

The Christmas decoration is a big part of what makes up the special atmosphere in December. We wish that this positive vibe and solidarity that are characteristic of December would continue throughout 2021, so we decided to keep the city centre of Kranj decorated until 8 February!


On a walk through the streets of the city you will still be able to see the verses of the poet Dr. France Prešeren. On the Maister Square (Maistrov trg) and the Main Square (Glavni trg), you will be greeted with the words: “We think well in our hearts”, “Let everyone shake hands” and “Let's raise our glasses for us as well”.


Verses of the poet Dr. France Prešeren will remain part of the decoration this winter.


Prešeren's verses can be found on Maister Square and the Main Square.

The wooden sculptures created by the master florist Matjaž Beguš have been delighting visitors of Kranj for many years due to his extraordinary talent and imagination and they are undoubtedly a real feast for the eyes. Every year we are looking forward to them and we impatiently wonder what kind of sculptures will this time join the ones from the year before on the streets and squares of our city.
