Ljubljana – Skopje – Celje – Podgorica

In the heart of the Balkans

Modern cities with a Balkan flavor.


As its inhabitants and numerous visitors will tell you, Ljubljana is, indeed, a people-friendly city. Categorised as a medium-sized European city, it offers everything a metropolis does yet preserves its small-town friendliness.

Ljubljana is known for being the heart of the nation, hosting large exibitions and many key historical events. Ljubljana is the proud holder of the title European Green Capital 2016 and its green spaces andan expansive Tivoli park are very popular with the locals and the tourists alike.


Skopje, the City that lies in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, at the crossroad of important communications, a city with a 2000 years old tradition. A very attractive tourist destination with its cultural and historical monuments, archeological sites, sport halls, caves in the canyon of river Treska and lake Matka, and a health spa in the eastern part of the city.


Diverse and rich experiences in a small area. Romantic streets in the historic city centre, small corners for secret conversations at the city park, architecture that unveils the richness and diversity of the past and rich content provided by museums, galleries and theatres.

All of that in the city centre and only a few steps away. Surrender to the atmosphere of the hustle and bustle on the street and, while walking around the city centre, look around you...


Podgorica Capital city of Montenegro is the official commercial and cultural centre. The name originates in 1326 and it is built amongst five rivers, the Zeta, Moraca, Ribnica, Cijevna and Sitnica. Most of the city was destroyed during WW II, so Podgorica is relatively new, with modern buildings at every step of the way and green spaces as well as parks. Podgorica hosts a number of cultural events and there are many theatres, such as Crnogorsko Narodno, Gradsko and Dodest.

Hospitality at its finest


The vision is to bring the biggest Women’s handball event in Europe closer to what biggest Men’s events represent. Enhancing the brand and the image of the women’s handball and improving all its products is a long-term mission and it never ends, but a professionally made strategic plan provides a useful focus and gathers talent and resources that energize and move the organization toward its mission goals.


“… For a sports event to truly flourish, people must be enticed to consistently watch games that do not feature their favorite team. Knowing how motives for watching one’s favorite team differ from the motives for watching other teams is the key head start for creating an unforgettable experience for everyone…”

Janet S. Fink & Heidi M. Parker “Why do we watch when our favorite team is not playing?”



It represents a global message for enhancing the brand and the image of the women’s handball, improving the products of the women’s handball and shortening the gap of the women’s handball with the men’s handball by making the Euro campaign a multiple-year series of events that concludes with the final Tournament in 2022
