Stage 1 of our particular return to Slovenia.

We left the town of Bovec, cradle of canyoning and rafting in that area and we went through a road that goes up briefly to take another secondary on the right and continue up through various villages to reach the main course of the climb where we expect 25 curves with a good slope. Little by little and small plate are going up, until you reach first a lookout and then the great Vrsic Pass where there are a couple of bars and space to rest and drink. After this there is a huge and fast descent where the curves are washed for more grip and we are coming to the village of Kranjka Gora where we spent the first night.
The municipality of Kranjska Gora is located in the valley area of ​​Zgornjesavska, also known as Gornjesavska Dolina, or as Dolina, a typical alpine valley and has all House Slovenija Avto, one kilometer from the center of the village and we found the price quite tight. The accommodation is quite good and breakfast too. We had dinner in the center of town where there are several restaurants.

Located in the most northeastern corner of Slovenia, where the borders of Slovenia, Austria and Italy meet, the valley is surrounded by mountains to the north and south. To the north are the peaks of the Karavanke mountains and to the south the Julian Alps. To the east its boundary is a little after the city of Jesenice, where it opens onto the Radovljica valley, extending westwards along the Sava and Slizza rivers, to the west of Rateče. To the north, the Wurzen Pass in Podkoren leads to Arnoldstein in Carinthia (Austria), to the south the Vršič Pass leads to Trenta, in the Slovenian coastal region.
Good accommodation a kilometer away from the center and across the road. Very quiet, cheap and cozy, breakfast quite correct.

Accommodation a little stale, is a typical hostel where you sleep well but breakfast leaves a lot to be desired.
