The event belongs to the RE:PUBLIKA Festival.
The word “sport” originally meant pastime or amusement. In essence, sport is an escape from school or work responsibilities into entertainment and diversion. That’s why it’s important for the place presenting sport’s history and present to have a diverting, relaxing character. In addition to an overview of the goals, points, and race times of former and current athletes, we offer passive and active relaxation for the whole family with the chance to try selected sports in their historical and current forms.
