Ljubno lies halfway between Ljubljana and Maribor, in the upper savinja valley – the gateway to the beautiful Logar valley. it is said to be the smallest place on earth that hosts world Cup competitions. Almost every house takes part in preparing this an- nual event in this village by the savinja river, where a colourful heritage of raftsmen and abundant hos- pitality can be found. no wonder the best women jumpers in the world feel at home here every year.
ski jumping has been present in Ljubno since long before world-class jumpers started visiting.
now that the entire world is watching ski jumps un- der the rajhovka peak, the competition is a welcome awakening during winters that can often get grey and sleepy. when the rumbling of snow cannons starts echoing and bright spotlights are lit up in the savina hamlet near Ljubno, excitement erupts.
