Since 2005 the sports association Slovenc from Ljubljana has
organized a big annual event in Portorož, which is the first event of the year
in Slovenia. It is the traditional New Year's Jump into the Sea on
1 January (at 2 p.m.), which continues
to attract more participants and spectators. There is also some symbolism hidden in the New Year’s bathing – an active
start to the new year, done a bit differently with a jump into our clean sea.
The Organizers make the event even more
interesting with an accompanying programme and take care of an active warm up
with interesting gear.
Bathing in water with a temperature of about 10 °C is beneficial for
our well-being, blood circulation and metabolism, enhances the immune system
and lessens our susceptibility to various illnesses.
Registration fee: 5 EUR (includes: commemorative certificate for
ambassadors of the Slovenian sea, coupon for tea or mulled wine, insurance for
each participant, participation in the awards ceremony).
