Šmartinsko lake - walking on water

1. Šmartinsko Lake – One of the largest artificial lakes, or reservoirs, in Slovenia. This popular destination includes walking paths, an open-air bathing site, as well as standard hospitality services. The lake offers recreational activities on the water, as well as great fishing.

2. Zlatorog Hall + the Football Stadium – The sports center of the town with two modern venues.
Handball has a long tradition in Celje. The most glorious season for the Celje Pivovarna Laško team was 2003/04 when they won the EHF Champions League.

3. Open air swimming pool – Throughout the town's history, public open air swimming pools were traditionally located on the Savinja River, which earned Celje the moniker "The Pearl on the Savinja River". Today, the open air pool includes an Olympic-sized pool and other facilities, offering a total of 1,700 square meters of water area.

4. Celjska Koča – A popular hiking and biking destination for many locals. During the winter, it doubles as a ski resort. Next to the ski slope, there is an adrenaline-pumping Alpine coaster, and the hotel's cuisine is first-rate. Educational path through the woods is also neatly maintained.

5. Kotečnik climbing wall, Liboje – Just outside Celje, there is an alpine ridge whose relief makes it one of the largest climbing walls in the South eastern Europe, challenging the climbers to countless routes of all difficulty levels.

6. Athletic stadium/tennis courts – Athletics has a long history in the city that has given many great athletes. The best known are Stanko Lorger, an honorary citizen and participant of three Olympic Games, and Stane Rozman whose national record for the 10,000 m run from 30 years ago remains unbeaten to this day. Next to athletic stadium, there are tennis courts and nice picnic place.
