Slovenia is an incredible nature’s playground and it is hard to find more diversity packed up on such a small area. Splendid natural resources have been upgraded with an adequate infrastructure and experiences, which is why Slovenia has developed into an excellent sports and recreational destination for 365 days a year, suitable for training professional athletes and sports teams, as well as for carrying out major international sports events.


is the capital of Slovenia with around 300,000 inhabitants.

Not many world capitals are as closely connected with nature as Ljubljana. The town forest is linked with the famous park reaching into the very centre of the culturally vibrant town. The river that flows between vibrant embankments through the old town centre carries the stories of the ancient pile-dwellers. The city at the very heart of the country is an excellent starting point for exploring all the Slovenian specialities such as virgin forests, mountain pastures, sports venues and important heritage sites.

Ljubljana, one of Europe’s green capitals, is also one of the European Best Destinations 2022, as voted by the travellers in the European Best Destinations project. As many as 92 per cent of votes for the Slovenian capital came from other countries. No other destination has won with such a high percentage of foreign votes.

It’s great to be active outdoors in nature all year round in Slovenia. In spring, climb the lower peaks in the highlands, venture to launch sites for some acrobatics in the air or climb sunlit natural climbing sites near the coast. In summer, it’s lively on the water and refreshing in the green forests and high mountain peaks. In autumn, there’s no limits for sports suited for all seasons, while snow in winter enables special sporting treats.

Slovenia is the first choice of many top athletes. In fact, many even live here. Slovenia is the chief inspiration for many recreational athletes. Here, many encountered for the first time the activity that now draws them irresistibly to the great outdoors. Where movement in nature is concerned, Slovenia is the right choice for everyone in any season of the year. 365 days a year.

Its extremely well-preserved nature and the variety of choices make Slovenia an extraordinary tourist destination and a sensational venue for top outdoor sporting events.
