Few years ago we detected that many of competitors want a better accommodation then old Kamniška Bistrica Inn was, because many of you started sleep at different locations around. We all know that a very important part of the competition is also getting together and having time to talk. The fact is that this is possible only if we are all accommodated at the same place. So, that is why we moved the location of the accommodation to a new popular thermal 4*complex Terme Snovik (www.terme-snovik.si), which is even a little bit closer to the city of Kamnik and it became a great success.

There you can order all kinds of accommodations you need. From double and single rooms to apartments for 2, 4 or 8 persons. With or without food. Prices are very suitable too.

You can find all prices and make a reservation and booking by your self at the Terme Snovik internet site (www.terme-snovik.si) or call them to the telephone 00386 (0)1 8344 100. If you have any problems you can contact us to help you.
