CHEERFUL SUMMER IN KRANJ
June – September 2024

Details of the event 2024 will be announced in the coming months.


 

In Kranj, you can feel as if you were in a large amphitheatre of the Alps, surrounded by mountains and everything sounds so good here, from jazz to blues, from Slovenian chansons to rock, from musicals to classical music.

Khislstein Castle

There’s a place for magical experiences in the summer, in the gardens and courtyards behind the walls that surround the Khislstein Castle. Concerts, theatrical performances, conversations with artists and open-air film evenings all take place outdoors. This Cheerful Summer begins with the Breath of Culture on Tuesdays, literary evenings and interesting conversations. Every Wednesday this summer, the coolest, raspy-voiced and hard-boiled Slovenian singer-songwriters invite you to Music Evenings under the Castle Linden Tree. Book a ticket and enjoy an evening of nostalgia with legendary musicians.

On Thursdays, it’s time for Films in the Vovk Garden, our little open-air cinema, where you can enjoy exceptional stories. Bring a blanket to be more comfortable, or a chair. The cinema is free of charge. Even more temperament will be felt on the Khislstein open-air stage.

Summer in Old Kranj 

On Summer Friday Evenings at Pungert you can enjoy really great music in a lively café atmosphere. End of August, the famous Jazz Kamp comes to Pungert and to the old town of Kranj. People here love it so much that we even plan our summer vacation according to its dates. It has a great program and workshops with famous musicians for jazz lovers from far and wide.

The Maister Square is also a great setting for summer events. In the intimate atmosphere of the Kavka Bar, smaller ensembles and soloists present their creativity and uniqueness, especially in acoustic performances.

Every Friday evening, in the Panorama stara pošta bar over the rooftops of Kranj, a DJ plays just the right rhythms for the summer. On some dates, there are themed evenings dedicated to refreshing summer drinks.

In addition to delicious cuisine, the KluBar Gastro Pub also has many interesting concerts.

The summer at the Layer House serves you art exhibitions, festivals, urban projects and evenings with great music on the large green terrace of the café overlooking the sunset.

When the summer arrives in Kranj, the streets are full of magical energy, concerts and other cultural pleasures, scattered throughout the town by the breeze from the Alps. The lively hustle and bustle is complemented by great summer food in the restaurants of Kranj and by the city’s attractions. Don’t miss the Kr’petek je (It’s already Friday!) street food event every Friday starting in the afternoon.

Visit this urban place in the embrace of the Alps and enjoy the warm evenings that can last an hour or two longer in summer. Bring your friends and find a cultural treat for every evening of the week. Let Kranj be your city this summer!
