Kranj - Slovenia | Green Destination
“The renowned climatologist Lučka Kajfež Bogataj is the ambassador for a green and sustainable environment in Kranj.”
Kranj is surrounded by nature. It is the only town in Slovenia from which you can see the Triglav, Stol and Grintavec mountains, the highest peaks of the three mountain ranges in the Slovenian Alps, and it is also the only town with a 30-meters-deep canyon in its centre, the gorge of the Kokra River. That is why people from Kranj like to say that we have one foot in the city and the other one in nature. We value our town and its centre that has been protected as a cultural monument since 1983 and we love the green nature that surrounds us, so every day, a sustainable attitude and a green orientation are our guiding principles.
The basic guidelines for Kranj were laid down in our Sustainable Urban Strategy 2030 which defined the town as the sustainable urban centre of the Gorenjska region. Since this is a clean, healthy and safe place, and we wish that it would stay this way, there are some little green sparks that you can use to support our efforts.
