Town wall of Kranj

Kranj was once very well protected due to its location on the narrow hill, the steep canyon of the Kokra River and the town wall. The total length of the wall was 870 meters. The majority of it is no longer present but is sometimes the paving blocks in the streets suggest where it used to be. When you take a walk through the old town, be aware of the lines of granite paving!


Of the original nine defensive towers, only three have survived – the Škrlovec tower, the tower on Pungert (in the photo) and the remains of the tower in the Vovk garden. Nowadays, all three of them are important players in the cultural scene of Kranj.
