10 Reasons for Visiting Planica and Staying at Union Hotels Collection
- Because Planica is only an hour's drive from Ljubljana, Slovenia's capital.
In fact, it’s not a popular destination for sports lovers only during the ski-flying event in March, but throughout the year. But it's winter that evokes a special feeling among the local population. Besides watching ski jumping and ski flying, you can spice up your stay in the vicinity of the sports centre with some cross-country skiing in an underground cross-country skiing track.
- Because you can combine a sporting event with some pampering.
Spend the day at the foot of the Planica ski flying hill and when the night falls, enjoy the comforts of the Sense Wellness centre at uHotel, where you can relax and get some relief for your tired muscles.
- Because Planica is the home of numerous records.
Did you know that as many as 42 world ski jumping and ski flying records have been set in Planica? This makes for a very good reason to visit this event.
