25-28 MAY 2023
Bled will host the 2023 European Rowing Championships from 25 till 28 May 2023.
Venue: Bled Rowing Center, Zupančičeva ulica 9, SI-4260 Bled, Slovenia.
The Slovenian rowing tradition has been crowned with the successful organization of the European and World Championships and the World Cup competitions at Lake Bled. Bled hosted the World Championships in 1966, 1979, 1989 and lastly in 2011 and has hosted the World Cup in 2010 and 2015. Bled has successfully hosted 2017 World Rowing Masters Regatta.
The organization of top-level regattas has contributed to the expansion of the sports facilities, the new finish tower, the grandstands and the boathouse area have also been renovated before the 2011 World Championships.
Today the Bled Rowing Centre is one of the best in the region.
The lake is fair to all
The competitors start their race to the finish line with a stroke of their oars in the heart of a tourist venue, literally under the balconies of the luxurious hotels and coffeehouses, which is definitely very pleasant for the athletes and attractive for the viewers. The winds do not affect the rowers selectively, the lake doesn’t have large tributary streams and it also doesn’t have any currents. The water is still and very rarely choppy.
The average past temperature in the time of the Championships was between 18 and 20 degrees Celsius. For more information you can follow weather forecast of Slovenian Environmental Agency.
