The Kranj Town Hall is one of the most important cultural monuments of Renaissance architecture in Slovenia.
The town hall got its present look with the merging of two buildings, the older, a corner building, and younger, in the Main Square (Glavni trg), where the entrance is today. The most interesting part of the corner building is the late Gothic pillared hall dating from the first half of the 16th century, which is now entered through the vestibule and what was once an open-fire or ”black” kitchen. During town fairs this room served as an event venue and was probably also used for storage of various goods. It is one of the finest 16th/17th-century Renaissance buildings in Slovenia.
Open to visitors are the Renaissance Hall and three permanent exhibitions: works of the academy trained sculptor Lojze Dolinar (1893-1970), an archaeological exhibition entitled The Iron Thread and an ethnographic exhibition on folk art in the Gorenjska region. There is also a gallery on the ground floor, intended for temporary exhibitions.
Guided tours of the permanent exhibitions are available for groups. Please call in advance.
