WELCOME TO EUROGYM 2020

EUROPEAN YOUTH FESTIVAL

CAN´T STOP THE FEELING

EUROGYM, which takes place every two years, has the objective to unite young European gymnasts. There is no competition, the programme is centred on sports activities and play, exchange and encounter. Numerous work-shops give the participants the possibility to discover and try new forms of activities and movements with young people of the same age.

WHY ICELAND?

Iceland is closer than you think. Only 3-5 hours from mainland Europe.

Iceland´s main airport Keflavík offers direct flights from over 60 European cities and over 100 flights a day.

Unlike some major European cites whose size can be intimidating, Reykjavik has a small-scale urban center that guests find easy to navigate.

The hassle-free city centre is safe and clean. Although the Viking sagas tell the tales on violence and raids the Icelanders today are very friendly and peaceful, ranking number one on the Global Peace Index.

Reykjavik was awarded the World Festival and Event City by the International Festivals & Events Association in 2011.

SAFE AND PEACEFUL

Iceland ranks no. 1 in the Global Peace Index 2017 for seven years running. Iceland is in the top 15 countries on the Global Compe veness index. Crime rate is 0,3 per 100.000. Lowest among OECD countries.

ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY

Iceland has been dubbed the Land of the Midnight Sun and indeed around midsummer eve the sun is visible all day round. This will be once in a lifetime opportunity to perform in the midnight sun.

WEATHER IN ICELAND

The summers are fresh and winters fairly mild. July is the warmest month and January the coolest. For further information on the weather browse Icelandic Met Office.

Map of the area

Eurogym 2020 will be mainly located in Laugardalur. Workshops will be spread indoors/outdoors in the valley and around the city. All participants at the Eurogym festival 2020 will get a pass allowing them free admission to Laugardalslaug Geothermal swimming pool during the Championship.

Laugardalur Sports Park is located in the heart of Reykjavík in walking distance from the city centre. Iceland ́s biggest geothermal swimming pool Laugardalslaug is located in Laugardalur and has been the meeting place of the locals since it ́s opening in 1968.

Reykjavík's heavenly pools are the heart of the city's social life: children play, teenagers flirt, business deals are made, and everyone catches up with the latest gossip. Volcanic water keeps the pools temperature at a mellow 29°C, and most of the hot pots, Jacuzzi-like pools, are kept at a toasting 37°C to 42°C.
