In the middle of the world-famous valley famous for its legendary ski flights, the Planica Nordic Centre is a museum of Planica’s history and tradition. It showcases the achievements and records that have shaped the Slovenian ski jumping scene and its development during the 1980s, starting with the record set in 1934. On these ski jumps, for the first time in the world, a record of over one hundred and two hundred metres was broken. On the first floor you will learn all about Stanko Bloudek and the Bloudek Giant, and on the second floor you will learn all about the famous Gorišek brothers.

The technical development of ski jumping with all the equipment and interesting facts about this winter sport are also presented. There are not only two ski jumping simulators where visitors can try out the role of ski jumpers, but even an interactive station to try out the role of a ski jumping judge. Peter Prevc, Jurij Tepeš, Franci Petek, and other ‘Eagles’ will talk to you on the hologram. Every year, at the end of the winter season, thousands of enthusiastic fans from all over the world gather in this very place to support the brave young ski jumpers.
