Kranj is Slovenia's fourth largest city and the largest in Gorenjska. It is an economical, mercantile, transport, educational and cultural centre. The city is constantly expanding. New shops and apartments are being built, old buildings and streets are being renovated and the city is looking more pleasant. Kranj was developed on the flat area above the confluence of the Sava and Kokra rivers, between the foothills of the Julian Alps and the western spur of the Kamniške-Savinja Alps and Karavanke. The name “Creina” first appeared in 1600 in Briksen’s traditional documents. However, it is in the old city centre that the most important cultural and historical monuments are found. The newest parts of Kranj are made up of Huje, Klanec, Planina, Primskovo, Čirče, Struževo, Zlato polje, Stražišče, Šmarjetna gora, Labore, Orehek and Drulovka.
