Kranjska Gora will host the next Men’s races of the FIS Alpine World Cup.
The Slovenian town is located in the Upper Sava Valley offering an amazing landscape and chosen as the set of the first Slovenian movie ‘Kingdom of the Goldhorn’. The beautiful nature of the Julian Alps has also the title of “biosphere” by UNESCO.
Two events contributed to the development of Kranjska Gora from a herdsmen’s settlement in the 14th century to today’s cosmopolitan Alpine village. The first turning point was the construction of the road through the Vršič mountain pass and the subsequent strategic importance of Kranjska Gora. The second turning point was the construction of the railway and the construction of the Planica ski jump.
Record ski jumps in Planica turned it into a tourist resort and on the slopes of Vitranc, the first cable ways were constructed. The Slovenian town has 18 ski slopes of different technical difficulty. Ski lifts and ski runs stretch over the slopes of Vitranc from Kranjska Gora to Planica at altitudes from 800 to 1,215 mt.
