“There is only one right way. Up!” is the motto of the Dunking Devils acrobatic group, which has created a new Slovenian spectacle. In their innovative project, which went viral on the internet, they spread the acrobatics and skilful handling of a basketball around the diverse Slovenia – from the narrow pier on the Slovenian coast and the Celje Castle to the ledge under the mighty Mangart Mountain in the Julian Alps.

“Whoever isn’t jumping isn’t Slovenian!” is fans’ traditional stimulation for top Slovenian athletes, from footballers to skiers, which was also acted out by members of the Dunking Devils. They connected important tourist gems in an interesting way and pointed out that Slovenia is a green, healthy and active destination.

Tourist guides around the world describe Slovenia as a green country with active people. Many Slovenians spend their days running or cycling early in the morning, gardening and growing their own vegetables after work, and socialising at the local choir or theatre group in the evening. The country located between the Alps and the sea offers plenty of outdoor experiences in all seasons. The most popular activities include hiking and cycling along internationally established routes where every sports effort is rewarded with amazing views. The diverse landscape is a genuine pleasure site for recreational and professional athletes – from climbers to golfers, from speleologists to riders, from paragliders to kayakers. The emerald Soča River is one of the most desired destinations in Europe for water lovers.

Swimming in a lake with a view of two-thousand-metre peaks is a special experience. In winter, Slovenia is home to a snow fairy tale with a wide selection of activities for alpine, Nordic and off-piste skiers, snowboarders, sled riders and ice skaters. The pan-Slovenian fitness contributes to its exuberant spirit.
