Kranj, a charming town in the Alps, halfway between the capital Ljubljana and the enchanting Bled, hosts the Wine Route in the tunnels under the old town. This is a unique culinary event with over 5000 visitors, a tasting of the best Slovenian wines, complemented by tastings of cheese, baked goods and cured meats.
The event is also a special experience because it takes place at a depth of more than 10 metres! Under the city centre there are 1300 metres of underground tunnels, which were built during the Second World War and are now the main attraction of the Wine Route.
Don’t miss this unique experience and join us in the Tunnels under the old town of Kranj on 18, 19, 25 and 26 November 2022!
Tickets (from €18 onwards) are available on the Eventim website. You can purchase them HERE. With the purchase of the ticket, visitors will receive a glass, a bag for the glass and this year also a shopping bag for wines and other specialties that they might buy.
