Gorenjci

The ONLINE Biographical Lexicon of Famous and Notable men and women from Upper Carniola (Gorenjska)presents biographies of personalities who were born in this region, living and studying here, and whose work above all impacted the region’s development in history as well as in the present. The area includes the administrative units of Kranj, Jesenice, Radovljica, Škofja Loka and Tržič – and, considering the historical borders of Upper Carniola, notable people may originate from a much wider area.
The website is run by the Kranj City Library in collaboration with other libraries in the Upper Carniola Region; content is also added by museums, schools and other institutions. We gladly accept proposals for adding new personalities to the lexicon. Send them to osp@mkk.si or via the online form.
