Winter Slovenia and 2021 IBU WC Biathlon in Pokljuka
There’s something special about biathlon events on Pokljuka. The trails wind through spruce forests against the extraordinary backdrop of the highest peak of the Julian Alps. Pokljuka is home to a modern sports centre which provides athletes with everything they need during competitions. Therefore, Pokljuka is a regular venue for World Cup biathlon events.
This year is very special for Pokljuka, as it will host the Biathlon World Championships between 9 and 21 February.
Biathlon is a sport that significantly strives towards sustainability since it is subject to climate impacts. Under the slogan, "Plastic Free Pokljuka", this year’s championship in Pokljuka will be one of the first major biathlon competitions where they will try to minimise the quantity of waste and avoid the use of plastics as much as possible.
