The origins of ski flying started in 1936 in Planica, when 18-year-old Austrian Josef "Sepp" Bradl became the first man in history to land a ski jump of over 100 metres (330 ft). It is a place where the most of the ski jumping world records were set on two different hills, and also the historic first jumps over 100 meters by Sepp Bradl on Bloudkova velikanka and over 200 meters by Toni Nieminen on Letalnica bratov Gorišek. Complex consists of eight hills in function and three abandoned hills. Sigmund Ruud gave Bloudkova velikanka name "Mammoth Hill". In 2015, the complete reconstruction was finished with total new cross-country skiing track derived through the valley of Planica.
Letalnica bratov Gorišek flying hill is also hosting annual Red Bull 400 world series event, the steepest 400 metres uphill run in the world, with over 1,000 competitors from around the globe.

It's a great place to visit. Stunning. It's also free to go to the top of the largest ski jump. It's about 1200 steps to the top. A great workout.
Beautiful and well worth a visit. You can see one of the biggest ski jumping hills in the world and even zip line of it. It is also a great starting point for some awesome hiking destinations.
