Newsletter No. 2

Škofja Loka – European Capital for 3 days

On behalf of the city of Škofja Loka and the mayor Tine Radinja, we would like to give you some more information about the General meeting of the DOUZELAGE that will take place from Thursday, August 25 until Sunday, August 28, 2022 in Škofja Loka, Slovenia.

Registration form
Click here to download the registration form, which we kindly ask you to fill in. We need your name and family name, gender and age. We would like to know if you will come as a delegate, non-delegate or the organizer; and which group you will join at the meetings. The organizer should send us her/his phone number.

It is very important for us to know the means of transport you will use for your arrival and departure. Transfer from the airport will be organised only from Ljubljana airport on Wednesday, August 24 afternoon and the whole Thursday, August 25 for the participants flying to Ljubljana airport. Other participants coming by plane to nearby airports (e.g., Venice, Zagreb …) around the same time could be picked up in Ljubljana (Central Bus station). On Sunday, August 28, transfer from Škofja Loka to Ljubljana airport or to Ljubljana Central bus station will also be organized.

Since the city of Škofja Loka does not offer enough accommodation facilities, we have booked all available hotels in or in the vicinity of the city. Students will be accommodation in three- or four-bed rooms. Other participants will be accommodated in double or single rooms. If possible, delegates from one town will be placed in the same accommodation facility.
In case you prefer a single room or you would like to share a room with someone else, state your preference in the registration form. Additionally, if you have any dietary requirements (vegetarian, vegan …), inform us in the registration form.

Although the program will be quite busy, we offer three free trips on Thursday, August 25:
– a bus trip to Planica Nordic Centre and to Zelenci Natural Reserve,
– a bus trip to Lake Bohinj and Savica Waterfall,
– a short bus trip and a walking tour to Fortifications on the Rupnik line.

On Saturday afternoon, optional outstanding sightseeing tours are also offered:
– a bus trip to Ljubljana,
– a guided tour of Škofja Loka,
– a 20km cycling tour around Škofja Loka with the members of Via Douzelage
All trips are included in the “registration form” and it is necessary to indicate which one are you applying for. Later registrations will not be possible.

In the Newsletter No. 1, non-delegates were informed about the costs. In the past two years, the prices have risen, so the attendance fee for adult non-delegates will be 200 EUR per person, and the attendance fee for the student non-delegates will be 120 EUR per person.
In the attachments you can find a program for teachers and a program for students.

Your registration form should be sent until July 10, 2022 to Sabina Gabrijel:
Newsletter No. 3 will be issued by July 20, 2022, containing the accommodation and location and our suggestions on further sightseeing tours.
