05. 08. 2022
There is exactly 200 days left until the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships Planica 2023, the biggest sporting event in the history of the Republic of Slovenia, which will take place in Planica and Kranjska Gora from February 21 to March 5, 2023.
We present you the most beautiful venue in the history of Nordic World Ski Championships. For more than a year, the Ski Association of Slovenia has been in close cooperation with the International Ski Federation, chiefs of competitions, experts, and other partners to design innovative solutions and create the best conditions and experience for participants, the media and, of course, visitors. Today we present the architecture of the venue to the public for the first time.
The competition venue is located in the sports paradise in the valley "Under the Ponce" with a wonderful view of the Julian Alps. There, we will enjoy ten competition days while the medal ceremonies will take place at the "Nordic Park" in the center of Kranjska Gora. The opening ceremony is scheduled for February 21, 2023, at 20:23, and we are also preparing an accompanying program for visitors.
Currently the final coordination with many partners is underway, which represents the biggest organizational challenge. We will soon encourage volunteers to join our team and to cocreate the biggest sports event in the history of Slovenia with their heartiness and dedication as seen so many times before.
We will ensure the best possible conditions for the athletes to achieve their goals at the upcoming FIS Nordic World Ski Championships Planica 2023. Our attention is dedicated to the visitors as well, and we are already eagerly waiting to welcome them. Accommodation facilities in Kranjska Gora will be dedicated to them, where the entertainment program will take place as well.
The FIS Nordic World Ski Championships Planica 2023 will present Planica, Kranjska Gora and Slovenia to more than 500.000.000 TV viewers around the world. We will become the center of the sports world.
