Countdown to the start of the championship
We have set up a countdown timer on the New Square, which is counting down the time until the start of the European Championship. As the organizers of this year's event are placing a strong emphasis on the empowerment and equality of women and the promotion of their role in our society, we have also set up the first pedestrian traffic lights with female figures in Ljubljana. These are erected at four intersections near the Stožice Centre: at the intersection of the street Dunajska cesta and the city ring road, the streets Vojkova cesta and Gosarjeva cesta, the streets Vojkova cesta and Baragova cesta, and at the intersection of the street Vojkova cesta and the city ring road.
