A Wide Array of Sports, Recreational and Adrenalin Opportunities

Sports and Recreation

Wonderful nature is visible and accessible practically everywhere in Velenje. Velenje’s tidiness and hospitality have received numerous prizes at domestic and international levels. Modern sports complexes, such as the city stadium, Red and White Halls, a ski-jumping centre, an indoor swimming pool, make an important contribution to the city's vibrancy. The Jezero Tourist-Recreational Centre (TRC Jezero) is something special since it is developed in the area of sunk lakes, which are a consequence of coal-mining. Nowadays it is one of the most beautiful and attractive Slovenia’s sports centres, bustling with activity from dawn till dusk. A magic world of the lake-shore invites all fans of strolls in nature, jogging (also cross-country skiing in winter), cycling and horse riding. The TRC Jezero offers modern tennis, beach volleyball and streetball courts, a futsal pitch, golf training course, etc.. The White Hall also houses a modern fitness studio. Furthermore, the youngest are fascinated with children’s playground with Villa Villekulla, the home of Pippi Longstocking.   For water sports enthusiasts, Lake Velenje provides plenty of wind for windsurfing and dinghy sailing or relaxed rowing and boating. Lakes Velenje and Škalsko are true paradise for angling lovers as well as for outdoor ice-skating lovers in winter.
