Heads or Tails

Book now

Follow your destiny through Prešeren’s Kranj

This is the story of a city that stands high on a rock. Two rivers flow under this alpine rock that has an urban pulse. The many dualities here can stir one’s imagination and you start to fantasize about fate. The tour includes 14 places, 14 attractions of Kranj that are related to the greatest Slovenian poet. The course of the tour is each time decided by the coin: “If a number is thrown, we go along the left street, and if we throw a head, then we take street on the right”, and so we embark on a fateful tour that plays with dualities and contradictions of the giant of Slovenian poetry and the city of Kranj.

 

On the Heads or Tails tour you can expect a great camera obscura experience, when the world is literally turned upside down, then you can a goose feather to write a letter and fall madly in love with the fateful and romantic divisions so typical of Kranj.

If you are wondering who is really behind the charismatic image of the man standing in Slovenian squares instead of statesmen and soldiers, flip a coin. What should be thrown, heads or tails?
