Cable Car in a Slovenian Resort Beats its Record in the Number of Visitors
More than 1,000 tourists have used the cable car during one day. The previous record of 680 people was set in Kanin at the end of July 2016.
In July this year, the Kanin cable car transported total of 8,700 tourists. For the entire summer season, over 11,000 people have taken a ride on this cable car.
During the summer period, the cable car runs from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Sončni Kanin Company plans to keep this schedule until at least 15 September.
Prolongation of the work schedule is possible, taking into account the attendance and weather conditions (in the rainy weather the cableway is closed). It is assumed that the cable car will operate until the end of the first week of October. In the middle of autumn, the car’s brake rotors will be replaced, which will increase its speed.
The new cable car in Kanin was reopened in September 2016. Its modernization cost 5.9 million euros, 3.8 million euros of which were allocated by the European Regional Development Fund.
