Jak byłem tu pierwszy raz prawie 20 lat temu, to były 2 skocznie i omalże zero infrastruktury...

Now, Velikanic rebuilt, they called Letalnica, they added 6 new hills and a lot of auxiliary buildings. As the first time I saw the biggest jumper, I thought about jumbers: "These dudes must have eggs to jump from there." There was no possibility to climb up because there was a festival and the operation was only after a few years. Then looking at the whole in advance I thought about the jumbers: "No!!!

Finally I made time in my calendar to visit Planica SkiFlying competition and Planica Nordic Ski Center. It was just amazing experience, even for my dad 70+ who is not a fan of ski jumping. The place ... more »
Sunny weather, new hill record and 2nd place on Sundays competition of Planica 2019 was perfect way to celebrate 50 years of this event which is also Slovene national pride. Need to visit it during summer for some adrenaline release and hiking spots.
Paradise in the valley of Tamar! Focus on combining with ski jumping and other Nordic sports!
