Unusual fontain in the middle of the old town was made by famous architect Jozef Plecnik. Worth a stop, but not much else to do around. Good for some nice photographs

Walking on the streets of the old town, a little secluded, here is this fountain designed by Jože Plečnik: the water flowed even though it was late October. Particular as well the nearby arcades.

While visiting and wandering around Kranj in a very overcast and quiet October we came upon this fountain. A Cockerell sits atop four levels of containers and spouts water, interesting and unusual. Worth a look but only takes seconds.

Jože Plečnik is one of my favorite architects. His work you can see here in Kranj. He is best known of creating Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Find his arcade in Kranj and enjoy.
