Photo Gallery: Rain and Wind Didn’t Bother Athletes on Banje Beach

The final event of the European Sports Week was held today on Banje Beach and despite the rain and wind, everybody was having so much fun!

There were various sport activities presented, but most of the participants enjoyed beach volleyball, and vawes higher than usual on this popular city beach.

Everybody wanted to meet famous Croatian athlete Janica Kostelić, four-time Olympic gold medalist, now Deputy Minister of Science, Education and Sports, who came to Dubrovnik to encourage the idea of European Commision – more recreation and sports in everyone’s life, not just professionals.

European week of sport is a new initiative of the European Commission to promote sports and physical activity across Europe. Everybody, regardless of age, origin or physical fitness, can participate. This European campaign will inspire Europeans to be active (#BeActive) during the week of sport and encourage them to stay active throughout the year.
