Ljubljana Open Curling Tournament. Fourth time.
throughout the last few years, Ljubljana Open has developed into one of the biggest ‘end of season’ curling tournaments in this part of Europe. This year, we were even more excited to organize the event with the record-high number of registered teams and to welcome more than 140 curlers from all over the world in the beautiful city of Ljubljana.
However, the world today faces a serious challenge, much bigger than us. Because of the global pandemics of the new coronavirus we are forced to cancel this year’s edition of Ljubljana Open tournament. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but the safety and health of all involved must come first. All teams that already paid the registration fee will automatically get a full refund to the bank account from which the fee was paid.
We are determined to come back next season – even better and even bigger. We will make sure you will be among the first to find out about it.
Until then, we wish you all the best. Stay healthy!

Ledena Dvorana Zalog was built in 2007 by the municipality and is the second largest ice hockey hall in Ljubljana. It is the home of 3 curling clubs from Ljubljana – Curling klub Ljubljana, Curling klub Olimpija and Curling klub Zalog. In the hall there is also a bar that offers cold and warm drinks and a small selection of snacks.
Both residents and numerous visitors perceive Ljubljana as a city made to the measure of man. Ljubljana is classified as a mid-sized European city, but it has preserved its small-town friendliness and relaxed atmosphere while providing all the facilities of a modern capital. It is a very unique city dotted with pleasant picturesque places where you can expect all kinds of nice little surprises. During winter, its dreamy central European character prevails, and during summer its relaxed Mediterranean feel. Due to its geographical position, Ljubljana is a perfect base for exploring the many faces and beauties of Slovenia.
The Ljubljana dragon is by far the most recognisable symbol of our capital city. From the Baroque era onwards, the dragon is a part of the city emblem. The dragon symbolizes courage, grandeur and power. It appears on car registration plates and buildings and it stands majestically on the Dragon Bridge. It is also present in various heraldic signs. The city flag brandishes the dragon as well. To fully understand its role in the city symbolism we must know the legend of the Ljubljana dragon and its origin.
