When we are planning a holiday and a well-deserved vacation, it is somehow self-evident that during the holiday, which we are just so eagerly waiting for and preparing for frantically, there will be beautiful sunny weather. In this way, we also organize our activities and activities for the whole family. The closer the magical start date of the holiday is, the more we review the weather forecast and the more gloomy we are when, in addition to the sun icon, a dark cloud icon appears.
So put on your rain boots, put on your raincoat and hit the road.
Despite the rain and gloomy weather, you can enjoy your vacation. There is nothing more beautiful than going for a walk in the woods with rain boots on. The green color of spruce and other trees in the rain gets a special, cleaner and more intense shade. Raindrops falling from trees on ferns and forest paths will soothe you, and your children will enjoy bouncing through puddles on forest paths. Forest animals also usually wake up after a storm, so be especially careful with children and observe the world around you, listen to birdsong and inhale the scents of the forest. Walks in the woods regardless of the weather have been part of Japanese culture for centuries. The beneficial effect of Japanese forest baths, however, has been a scientifically proven fact for more than three decades.
Similarly, raindrops will have a calming effect on you when walking through the center of Kranjska Gora or looking at the streets through the windows of cafes and bars in Kranjska Gora, when you observe sliding raindrops on the windows. Have you ever visited Lake Jasna and observed clusters of clouds hovering over the high walls of Prisank and Razor and quietly sneaking into the valley bottoms? Greens are just as interesting in the rain as in the sun. The typical green color of the lakes, with a constant temperature of 6 degrees Celsius, is even greener in cloudy weather, and you can also temporarily hide from the rain in the lookout tower, which also offers you a collection of interesting facts about Zelenici and its inhabitants.

If you prefer to be pampered by others, you can visit the SPA wellness centers and relax in a sparkling bath by candlelight or a massage. With the family, you can go to one of the indoor pools, where children can have fun in water adventures.
Your little ones will also enjoy learning about the heritage of mountaineering in the Slovenian Mountain Museum. Through fun digital games, they will learn many novelties about mountaineering and alpinism with Planinka. The whole family can “face” the Triglav challenge, a board game that you can easily complete with cooperation, a bit of mountaineering knowledge and logic. If you are a fan of virtual reality, you will be completely impressed by the zipline descent from the top of the highest Slovenian mountain! Before the storm, you can also take refuge in the bivouac in front of the museum. It is a museum exhibit that hides a playful path of experience. Will you figure out the secret codes? Will you avoid pitfalls and precipices? Will you remember the right path? Will you find the right bivouac and escape?
