There is a small train station located at Kolodvorska cesta, west of the centre of town, with a ticket office which is open during normal office hours. It is served by regular trains running between Ljubljana and Jesenice. There are also additional international trains (connecting to Villach, Austria), which run approximately every 4 hours.

The bus station is located where Bleiweisova cesta meets Stošičeva ulica. More information on buses can be found on the operator's website.

Taxis can be found outside of the central bus station and the railway station.

Known by Grad Khislstein (castle) and poet Prešeren museum. Through the city flows the river Kokra in a deep canyon.

Šmarjetna gora is a nearby hill with hotel and restaurant on top, from which there's a nice view of Kranj and surrounding landscape. It's accessible on foot or with a car.


In the city are small shops, but out on the edge of town are more shopping centers! One is Majdičev log on the river Sava island, another on Planina, much bigger!
