Historic Town Centre

The centre of Kranj is one of the most charming in Slovenia. The centuries old town houses are real eye-catchers, as are the masterpieces by giants of Slovenian architecture like Plečnik and Vurnik.

Kranj is a place where culture and tradition have their home. On every step in the historic centre, closed for traffic, one can feel the sympathy towards the poet France Prešeren, a great man of romanticism and author of today’s national anthem. An artistic atmosphere flows also through the little shops in the town centre.

Discover the town walls, the defence towers with their new cultural contents, the Khislstein Castle, the Layer House and the Gallery of Prešeren Award Laureates.
