Dovje is a village with a thousand year history and agricultural tradition. Squeezed under the steep side of the Karavanke Mountains, industrious villagers formed terraced fields in its foothills through the centuries.

Even older than Kranjska Gora is the mysterious village of Podkoren which hides wonderful tales from times when tourism was still foreign to the Zgornjesavska Valley. A paved medieval road led through the village which in the 15th century served as a connection between the countrysides of Carniola and Carinthia. Until the year 1990 when the Karavanke tunnel was built, the road through the Korensko sedlo presented the main traffic connection with central and northern Europe.

The history of Kranjska Gora reaches back to the second half of the 14th century when the inhabitants began chopping down the forests to a larger extent, transforming them into farm land. Somewhat later, ski jumping and ski flying in Planica carried the name of the area and valley throughout the world. This encouraged a blossoming tourist activity in the Kranjska Gora region especially when the first cable cars were built on the sides of the Vitranc at the end of the fifties.
