Kokra River canyon

A very special feature of Kranj is the 30 meters deep canyon of the Kokra River right next to the old town, which makes it the 2nd deepest urban canyon in Europe. It is a favourite spot for people who like to get away from the busy life in the town and it is pleasantly cool in the summer heat. Visitors of the canyon can be nourished by the energy of nature and a variety of plants and animals lives there. Experienced tourist guides can accompany you along a circular path up and down the river. The scent of wild garlic in early spring, flowering shrubs and the song of birds invite you to sit down on a bench and enjoy the richness of flora and fauna. You will also be able to see witnesses to the co-existence of human society and nature in this area. In past times, mills and sawmill were standing by the wild river and many bridges were built across it. Experience Kranj where you can stand with one foot in the city and the other one in nature!
