Nature

Next to the Kranj grammar school stands a giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) that is a protected natural monument. The top of this 27-metre high tree leans about five metres from its vertical line. To preserve this unique natural monument, the Regional Unit of the Institute for the Protection of Nature of the Republic of Slovenia proposed that the tree should be secured by steel to the grammar school building so as to prevent it from leaning further.
