Equestrian centre

Horse riding is a wonderful way to spend your free time, as it combines movement in nature and connection with animals. The Equestrian School Sports Center Češča vas and the Vizir Equestrian Association both operate in the Olympic Centre, offering a wide range of options for both beginners and experienced riders.

Recreation Park

The Olympic centre is surrounded by a sandy jogging trail with a total length of 1000 metres, which enables one to exercise at five stations. At the equestrian centre there is a park for motor skills activities with playgrounds made of natural materials, and next to it there is a sensory learning forest trail, which is adapted for the blind and partially sighted.

In the embrace of nature

The Olympic Centre is located in a tranquil area on the outskirts of Novo mesto, in the green freshness of the local forest. The area is the basin of the Temenica River, included in Natura 2000, European network of protected nature areas, which provides habitat for many living creatures, including endangered species.

Connected to urban area

The Centre is well connected to the road infrastructure and can be reached in less than 10 minutes from the Novo mesto Zahod motorway exit. Bicycle connections and footpaths, as well as bridges over the Krka River, encourage visitors to reach the Olympic Center on foot or by bicycle.

Hospitality at all seasons

The covered velodrome, athletics hall and swimming pool allow for exercise even in the cold months of the year, while the extensive green areas offer refreshing shade for pleasant recreation and relaxation even in the summer months.

What our visitors said

Statements by category

 As a child, I wanted to train swimming, but Novo mesto did not offer that possibility. Nevertheless, it is my favorite form of recreation and I often swam in sports pools in Ljubljana. I am overjoyed that I can swim at my hometown now. Our swimming pool is better than any other, the view from the water of the greenery fills you with special energy.

Andrej

Experts emphasize how useful swimming is for children, for the development of the child’s skeleton, for good posture, heart and lungs, for fitness and well-being. That’s why I wanted all my children to attend swimming lessons and I took them to the swimming pools nearby. I am happy that my youngest child will be able to learn to swim in a nice new pool in our hometown.

Tamara

Finally, The swimmers who have outgrown the Grm pool and want more serious swimming can only say: “Finally!” September is here and it’s time for a real swimming pool, which was eagerly expected by the capital of Dolenjska Region and by all those who can’t wait to swim. The first jump into the pool justified all our expectations. Its location, the connection with nature and the direct proximity to the forest make swimming in this complex even more inviting and special. It will be a pleasure to swim, to follow the events, results and young talents that the new pool will attract in the future.

Igor K.

When we were first testing the pool, we tried to get used to the fact that the pool is longer than the one in Grm, that the water is cooler, that it has everything that real sports pools have. Well, it’s not hard to get used to better things. As we swim, between the short breaths we see roe deer and rabbits running across the meadow next to the forest. The new pool really is superb!

Žan Ž.

 As a member of PKNM, I had the privilege of being able to swim in our new pool. I’m impressed with the location, being out of the way of walkers. The pool offers me the possibility of undisturbed swimming, which we haven’t had in the Dolenjska Region until now. I am grateful to witness the historic event. I wish everyone to enjoy swimming.

Vesna M.

Be it strength training or track cycling, we find the best conditions in the Olympic Centre in Novo Mesto. That’s why Cycling Austria organized our trainings in Novo mesto Olypmic Centre together with the Austrian Para Team for the UCI Track World Championship in Paris 2022.

My daughters like that in the Equestrian Center Češča vas, as part of the summer riding camp, as well as otherwise, the children can also take care of the horses. They can brush and feed the animals, which is where the real connection happens. In Češča vas, all children receive a warm welcome. They feel just like at home with Branko who is always in good mood.

Tina

The Vizir Equestrian Association offers ideal environment for birthday celebrations and other get-togethers. The location is close to the town and easily and quickly accessible, with the possibility of parking a large number of cars, but at the same time it is remote and in a quiet, natural environment. Children can ride horses, enjoy on the playground or simply run around safely. It’s great.

Matjaž

Equestrian school sports center Češča vas is where love for horses and equestrian sports develops and where a lot of knowledge and experience is gained. At the same time, there is a lot of goodwill, where people get connected and the riders mutually support one another. The equestrian center is getting bigger by the day in terms of the number of horses, riders and visitors. It is the speacial atmosphere that we all feel when Branko, Tanja and Jure wave to us from afar.

 

 Sofija Divac

Grandma brought us to Češča vas for the first time. Since then, our visits have become more and more frequent, and a love for horses was born, especially among children, which attended a riding school and participated in an equestrian camp. As many as three family members attend the riding school under Juret’s tutelage. Because we trust the Equestrian school sports centre Češča vas, Branko and Jure a lot, we have decided to put our first horse, the pony called Linda, in their care.

Lindič

The motor skills park is a real joy for my children! The playing surfaces are really imaginatively designed. I am so grateful that we have such a wonderful place where children can climb, run and explore the natural environment.

Katja

Češča vas is just the right distance for an afternoon family cycling trip. At the finish line, the children enjoy on the playground and watching the horses, while my wife and I go jogging along the forest paths and wander a little. This is a beautiful part of Novo mesto.
