Geography

The Municipality of Naklo in the Ljubljana Basin lies in the Kranj Plain and in the middle of the Naklo Valley between the two oldest terraces of the Sava and Tržič Bistrica rivers. It is surrounded by the Dobrava conglomerate terrace and Udin Woods (Slovene : Udin boršt). To the south and east it borders the City Municipality of Kranj, to the north the Municipality of Tržič, and to the west the Municipality of Radovljica.

The freeway from Ljubljana to Jesenice passes the edge of the Udin Woods, and on the west side of the woods there is a road to Jesenice and Tržič. Both lead to border crossings with Italy and Austria.
