Slovenia, the land of outstanding sports achievements

Slovenia is hosting the largest women’s sports event since the country gained its independence. From 4 to 20 November, Celje and Ljubljana will be hosting matches of the European Women’s Handball Championship, together with North Macedonia and Montenegro.

Slovenia as a sporting country is not only known globally for the exceptional achievements of its athletes, but also because it is an outstanding organiser of major sports events. The teams of sportsmen and sportswomen we Slovenians support are part of our identity, and we can feel close to them. We celebrate with them when they win, but are also proud of them when they do not make the top rankings. They are always heroes for us. Our hearts beat as one with theirs. Slovenian sportsmen and sportswomen are heroes famous throughout the world.
