The city of Kranj occupies an interesting geological site, a rocky promontory above the confluence of the Sava and Kokra rivers. The canyon of the Kokra River is a natural point of interest famous in particular for its conglomerate terraces. The trail is suitable for all lovers of nature interested in the diverse life of a river canyon. You can get an experienced guide to take you on the circular education trail.
From the old city core of Kranj, you will descend to the canyon in a small group. You will learn how the process of dissolution shapes rocks fissures, hollows, caves, and even sinter coatings. You will also learn about the life in the river and alongside it and be fascinated by the mosaic of water and riverine biotopes and special plants and plant associations such as the vegetation of rock blocks, forest margins, and riverbanks.
