Kranjska Gora is located in the Upper Sava Valley, in the northwest of Slovenia. It lies at the mouth of the Pisnica River to the Sava Dolinka and belongs to the narrower area of the Triglav National Park.
It is surrounded by the peaks of Mala Mojstrovka, Vitranc, Razor and Prisank. It is an important mountain tourist destination and a well-known winter sports center. Around the old village core of Kranjska Gora, a new part of the village has been developed, which is primarily intended for tourism. It consists of hotels, holiday homes, guesthouses, a shopping center and recreational facilities. Kranjska Gora with its neighboring settlements Podkoren, Ratece, Gozd Martuljek and the valleys Velika Pisnica and Planica represent a tourist area with ski slopes, lifts, walking trails and cross-country skiing. They are holding international competitions in alpine skiing on the steep slopes of Vitranc near Podkoren and ski flights and jumps in Planica. The speciality of skiing in Kranjska Gora is in the variety of terrains that offer skiing for both experienced top skiers and beginners.
