Krvavec is one of Slovenia’s most popular ski resorts and mountain recreation centres, thanks in part to its convenient location just 25 kilometres from Ljubljana and a mere 8 kilometres from Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. A cable car that operates all year round will take you to the summit of Krvavec.
