Kranjska Gora is a well-known sports and tourist center that attracts many local and foreign visitors throughout the year. The story of the place goes back to the second half of the 14th century, when the inhabitants began to clear forests and turn them into pastures for cattle and sheep and agricultural centers.
It became strategically important during First World War, when Russian prisoners made a military road across the Vrsic Pass from the Sava Valley to the Soca River Valley. As a tourist destination, Kranjska Gora became famous with the construction of the railway line and the first visitors. In the later times, however, the summers and the jumps in Planica brought the name of the valley and place to the world. This contributed to the rapid tourist development of the area, especially when the first ski lifts were erected on the slopes of Vitranc in the late 1950s. The sculpture park is located in the center of Kranjska Gora, in the area behind the Grand Hotel Prisank. In 2004, a sculpture colony was held in Kranjska Gora, which supported it financially Hotel and tourism company Gorenjka. In the area of the park there was once a wild, unguarded parking lot, which with the new arrangement enriched the tourist offer of the place in the cultural and artistic field. The sculptures are the work of artists Boni Ceh, Francisek Berce, Crtomir Frelih, Metod Frlic and Boget Dimovski.
They are made of stone and wood. The entire landscape architectural arrangement of the park offers the walker is a combination of sculptural and park elements that are designed to fit into the wider Alpine landscape of Kranjska Gora.
