Slovenia might be among the smaller countries in the world, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in its diversity. In fact, this green country (over 60% is forested) is the only European country where the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Karst and the Pannonian Plain meet. 


A natural playground with an astonishing diversity of terrains, Slovenia invites you to spend time outdoors; be it in the mountains, among the rolling hills, on the coastline and in the sea, in the green forests, by the rivers and lakes or even in the caves. Unique and unforgettable active adventures are guaranteed, no matter the season.  


Pristine and diverse nature together with Slovenia's unique location at the crossroads of four geographically completely different worlds are just a few of the most important reasons why sport is such a big part of Slovenian identity. There is even a holiday dedicated to sports, celebrated every 23 September.  

If you add well-organized sports infrastructure, then it is not surprising that Slovenians are definitely among the top in the world in terms of the number of sports achievements per inhabitant.    


Top ski jumpers, cyclists Tadej Pogačar and Primož Roglič, basketball player Luka Dončić, sports climber Janja Garnbret and many other Slovenian names in the world of sports fill the headlines of the world media and push the boundaries of the possible. Their incredible achievements make some people believe that Slovenian athletes come from another planet, but they’ve guessed it wrong: they come from heavenly beautiful Slovenia, a small green country in Central Europe, with a big sporting heart.  


While in Planica, immerse yourself in the majestic beauty of the Julian Alps. The mighty peaks offer incredible views and crystal-clean waters sparkle in the sunshine offering tranquillity to anyone searching for a connection with nature. Shelter can be found in charming Alpine towns where the wealth of cultural heritage and countless opportunities for outdoor recreation and relaxation in nature invite 365 days a year.
