2 Best Sights in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

Vršič Pass

Fodor's choice

From Kranjska Gora, head south over the breathtaking Vršič Pass, some 5,253 feet above sea level. You’ll then descend into the beautiful Soča Valley, winding through the foothills to the west of Triglav Peak and passing truly magnificent scenery. From Trenta, continue west for about 20 km (12 miles) to reach the mountain adventure resort of Bovec. The Vršič Pass isn’t for the faint of heart—every hairpin turn is fraught with danger—but roads in Slovenia don’t come much more exhilarating than this. The truly brave should make the journey via bus from Kranjska Gora. The pass closes when the weather is particularly bad in winter.

Dom Trenta

You'll find the Triglav National Park Information Center at Dom Trenta in Trenta. Here, you can watch a presentation about the history and geography of the region and tour the small museum. It's also a good access point to the 20-km (12-mile) Soča Trail that winds along the river's banks. The center is open from the end of April through to the end of October, daily from 10 to 6.
