Kranj Old Town and Khislstein Castle
Protected as a cultural monument, the charming Old Town protects numerous important cultural and historical sights such as the house of the greatest Slovenian poet France Prešeren, Mitničar House as one of the most important medieval houses in Kranj, the Old Post Office and its facade decorated with statues by the famous Slovenian sculptor Lojze Dolinar, and the 13th century Khislstein Castle, which hosts the Museum of the Gorenjska Region.
Škofja Loka Old Town and Loka Castle
Škofja Loka has one of the best-preserved medieval old towns in Slovenia. In the Lower Square more modest houses can be found, while the Town Square has mighty houses and palaces with stone portals, painted facades and arcaded courtyards.
Standing above the Old Town in all its majesty, is Loka Castle, built in the beginning of the 13th century. The museum in the castle proudly exhibits archeological, historical, cultural, artistic, natural science and ethnological collections.
An artificial lake, that was formed after damming of the Sava river, today provides a habitat to 30 different bird species. It is often referred to as “swan lake” as it is home to more than 160 swans.
Old Castle Smlednik and The Way of the Cross
The Old Castle, also called Smlednik Castle, once had an important strategic role, protecting the cargo route. The castle has been abandoned since the early 17th century and because it has not had any renovations since, today the castle represents the conception and development of the medieval castle of Central Slovenia in its purest form.
Just below the castle, there is the Way of the Cross with fourteen chapels and three crosses on the top, which is a unique architectural feature from the 18th century.
