About Ljubljana Cup
The First and the Last ~ 1979 was a focal date in Space Modelling's history, a decade-old ARK Komarov set up the First Ljubljana Cup. Significant...but no one could have envisaged the immense positive consequences...nobody had even thought about the World Cup back then.
More years, more Ljubljana Cups and all too often, the latest edition better than the last. Ljubljana really is the Mecca for Space Modellers and it is the one event that can be relied upon to take place, even the schisms of the former-Yugoslavia, ~25 years ago, did not interrupt the sequence. Some might even claim that the Ljubljana Cup re-united warring factions. More happily, it is where the entries are BIG; the flying standard BRILLIANT; the parties MEMORABLE. It's where the Dragons are hunted in a playful spirit and always come back for more. It's where the World Cup placings are decided each year.
Enough, in practical terms, Ljubljana is the European Championships...Dragons truly a cherished beast. Astronavsko raketarski klub Vladimir M. Komarov is a cult and every year sets up the Last word in Space Modelling World Cups...it's the VERY BEST.
