Yesterday, on 30th September, a crowd of sports enthusiasts gathered at the Kongresni trg to greet our two heroes from Spain’s Vuelta Tadej Pogačar and Primož Roglič, the kayakers Eva Terčelj and Nejc Žnidarčič, the canoeist Luka Božič and the Slovenian volleyball team that returned from the  European Championship in Paris with a silver medal. The rich programme with numerous musical performances and talks with the athletes was full of energy and emotions that manifested in the singing of the Slovenian anthem Zdravljica.  But the pictures in the gallery tell more than any words.
