Slovenian tourism is on the rise and many tourists come to ski and a large percentage come to Kranjska Gora region. It’s a beautiful area and many overseas property investors are buying in the town and surrounding area, for the potential to make great capital gains and solid rental incomes from tourists.
Kranjska Gora is situated in north western Slovenia near the borders with Austria and Italy.
The best known of all the Slovenian ski resorts and Kranjska Gora is a picturesque romantic and popular alpine village. The area is a regular site for World Cup races; the town being near to both the Austrian and Italian borders allows skier’s access to three different countries all in close proximity to each other on one pass.
Slovenia is rising in popularity as tourism is being promoted more actively by the Government. It remains a cheaper base than Austria and Italy, yet both are within easy reach and of course Slovenia has much to offer in terms of skiing in its own right.
The imposing peaks of the Julian Alps dominate the skyline around the resort and vast fairytale alpine forests stretch from Mojstrana to Rateče. Kranjska Gora also touches Triglav National Park to the south (the largest in Slovenia) and an area of outstanding scenic beauty,
The Kranjska Gora ski lifts are the oldest in all of Slovenia. The lifts are easily reached and because of their altitude (the lower station is just 813 meters) they offer favorable snow and weather conditions and are suitable for skiers of all abilities.
Beginners can take on the slopes and trails in Kranjska Gora and Gozd Martuljek, while experienced skiers can try the more challenging Podkoren trail. The world’s best skiers also compete annually here for the Vitranc Trophy in World Cup men’s giant slalom.
Kranjska Gora does not just attract skiers and the area is a real paradise for nature lovers all year round.
