Velika Planina, an Alpine plateau above Kamnik, wows its visitors in all seasons, but 2018 is set to be a record year for tourism on the plateau.

The Velika Planina Company, a company in charge of cable cars and three inns on the plateau, are very pleased with this year’s results, as most visitors use their cable cars to access the plateau. “Even though the weather was less pleasant than last year, figures show that we’re on track to end 2018 with record numbers. By the end of September, we had already had more visitors than in all of 2017,” said Leon Keder, the head of the Velika Planina Company.

Workers at the Zeleni Rob inn are also happy with this year’s visitor numbers, especially in July and August, when Velika Planina saw many foreign visitors. Foreign tourists have visited the plateau even in inclement weather. Domestic visitors, on the other hand, are eagerly awaiting the reopening of a cable car station and an inn at the foot of the plateau, both of which burned down last year.

We’re in the process of applying for a building permit. We’ll begin construction as soon as the permit is issued,” said Keder.

2018 has been a record year for the entire Kamnik region. “We’re extremely happy with this year’s tourist season. I think it’s been a record year for us,” said Tomaž Simetinger of the Kamnik Tourism, Sports and Culture Agency. In the first six months of 2018, the Kamnik region recorded a total of 20,000 visitors, who accounted for 50,000 overnight stays. “This is in line with the goals set out in our 2020 strategy,” said Simetinger.
