Kranjska Gora

Our final adventure in Slovenia was in and mostly around Kranjska Gora. It’s a fairly famous ski town and we had heard it was great for New Years Eve celebrations. Mostly we went to see the gorgeous Julian Alps. To clear it up -the Alps go over 8 countries and 750 miles (1,200 km). So […]
