Advent in Kranjska Gora

The most wonderful time of the year is approaching. A time for gathering around a warm hearth, a time for sincere handshakes, and the sparkling joy in the eyes of children as they await the visit of three good men. This year we invite you to the centre of Kranjska Gora, where the Alpine Village will once again invite you into its warm embrace. The wooden houses will smell of Christmas delicacies and mulled wine. The opening of the Alpine Village with the switching on of the lights will take place on Saturday 26 November at 18:00. The internationally renowned and award-winning Slovenian a cappella group Bassless will entertain the crowd. The quintet’s distinctive musical expression will gently lead you towards a merry December with a mix of elements of popular and rhythmic electronic music on the one hand and classic a cappella jazz arrangements on the other.

The magical Alpine Village will host well-known Slovenian musicians and bands for three Saturdays in a row. On the third of December, the popular Slovenian singer-songwriter Ditka will entertain the crowds. A week later, a real musical treat is on the horizon, with the Kvatropirci, who will seduce the Alpine Village into musical ecstasy with their voices. On the third Saturday of Advent, the young rock band Ekvorna will perform for fans of harder rock rhythms. We have also made sure that our youngest children will be able to enjoy a theatre performance by Lenko the Elf, who will be late with the gift preparation as usual, on Wednesday 21 December at 5 pm in the Alpine Village. If the children help the elf prepare the presents, they will also be visited by Santa Claus.

The Alpine Village will be festively decorated once again, with a big red ribbon turning the People’s Centre into a big Christmas present. The Alpine Village will also offer visitors the chance to buy presents for their loved ones in its varied offer. You will also be able to buy them at the Alpine Advent Market in the Slovenian Mountain Museum in Mojstrana. The neighbouring Viharnik garden, created by local Stane Brus, will invite all romantic souls into its magical embrace for a stroll through a garden decorated with thousands of lights. A stone’s throw away, the mystical forest of the Ice Kingdom awaits you, where you will be able to rule the Ice Kingdom from your throne like a king(s) for a moment. New photo spots, some simple games for the little ones and an ice swing for all the romantics have been added. The spruce tree and evergreen boughs symbolise life force and eternity, further emphasising the Christmas message. The Ice Kingdom is scheduled to be open from 15 December, weather permitting.

This year, the longest night of the year will be celebrated with the sounds of the Saša Avsenika ensemble, while the youngest children will be able to enjoy a children’s New Year’s Eve party, which will take place in the Vitranc Hall from 15:00.

Advent is a time to relax, to take time out for friends and loved ones. Let us rejoice with them and let the festive atmosphere wash over us. There are countless reasons to visit the festively decorated Kranjska Gora. So welcome to its warm embrace.
