Tri-border 'Tromeja': 3 countries 1 destination!

Can't decide between Austria, Italy and Slovenia for your next holiday?... Kranjska Gora gives you access to all three - ski Austria, Italy and Slovenia in one weekend!

Uniquely positioned on the Austrian-Italian-Slovenian triborder (or 'tromeja' in Slovene), Kranjska Gora is a great base for exploring the entire region with easy access to a huge range of world class ski resorts, amazing cultural and natural attractions -including stunning alpine lakes in each country- and countless outdoor activities, not just in Slovenia but also nearby in Italy (on the western side of the Julian Alps) and Austria (on the northern side of the Karavanke Mountains). There is even a pleasant hike to the actual site of the tri-border, where you can literally stand in three counties at once.

The Kranjska Gora tri-border region offers three distinct cultures within close proximity, so visitors can have proper Italian espresso and brioche for breakfast in Tarvisio (or 'Trbiž' in Slovene), traditional Austrian schnitzel for lunch beside a lake in southern Austria and have a hearty Slovenian goulash for dinner. Whilst its not too far to other great destinations in Slovenia, the world famous Lake Bled is just 30mins south and the capital Ljubljana an 1 hr away.

Slovenia beyond Kranjska Gora
Lake Bled Slovenia

World famous Lake Bled, Kranjska Gora tromeja regionLake Bled is truly a must see destination, named by Yahoo Travel as one of the World's 10 Most Beautiful Lakes, it's easy to see why –a fairytale castle sits high on cliffs, looking out over the lake to the island where stands a 17th century church. Mountain peaks and alpine forests frame the landscape in what is an outstandingly beautiful place. The town at one end is fairly developed with lots of bars, restaurants, hotels and other tourist facilities, whilst at the other end it is quieter and generally less built up. Taking a “Pletna” boat out to the island is certainly one of the highlights of any trip to Slovenia.
