The Tivoli Hall complex was built in the 1960s using materials often associated with shock work (or “udarniško delo” in Slovenian), i.e. concrete, steel and aluminium. Since then, many of the major indoor sports competitions held in Ljubljana have been held there. In 1970 the large arena was packed to almost bursting, as it was filled with twice as many people as recommended. This was during the final round of the FIBA World Championship, when the Yugoslav national basketball team beat the USA. Louis Armstrong was the very first world-famous performer in the hall, which has since seen many great concerts. Although recent years have seen major sports events relocating to the Stožice Arena, Tivoli Hall continues to be the home of hockey in Slovenia. If you want to feel like a local, you’ll need a green scarf.
