Situated in close proximity to Kranj, there is a place of ploughed fields, green meadows, dark woods and particularly hospitable houses, with flowers on the window sills. At one time it was 'home' to brigands who preferred to live in secret communities rather than sign up for military life. One of their hideouts was Arneževa Luknja near the village of Duplje which can be accessed by the Pod Krivo Jelko circular nature trail. In addition, there are the popular forest trails in the Udin Boršt natural park and Dobrava where the constantly dripping water fossilises the moss. These trails pass picturesque churches and lead to the Gradič Manor in Okroglo and the Dupljanska Graščina Manor in Spodnje Duplje. On a hike in the neighbourhood you will be surprised by a number of hayracks in Strahinje. The area offers plenty of recreational and hiking possibilities, as well as the chance to discover interesting karstic phenomena.
