Hotel's history

The beginnings of the hotel on Pokljuka

The hotel has a long tradition, as it was built around 1928 / 1932. It was built by Ivan Kenda, who at that time was the majority owner of many hotels in Bled. In Pokljuka, he created a refuge for Bled and Bohinj dignitaries, landowners, merchants and important people from the wider Gorenjska region. They spent their free time here and gathered forest fruits, which is why Pokljuka is still widely visited today. The hotel was last renovated in 1973 and had to wait until 2009 for a new look.
In the period between the wars, Slovenia was very active in the field of mountaineering. The great wish of many was to climb Triglav. In this respect, Pokljuka was an excellent starting point for recreationists who came from all over Slovenia and from the Hotel Šport, as called in the past, to the highest peak in Slovenia.
