This stunning location had been kept a secret by the Romanians until 2017, when the Federation hosted a European Cup. It was so successful that World Triathlon chose the venue to be the World Championships in 2018.
Since then, we have held the European Championships at this prestigious venue, where athletes have a wide choice of accommodation on-site and where the owners are able to produce and store snow that is used to ensure the tracks are just right for you.
2021 will see the very first Europe Triathlon medals awarded to athletes of all categories and all ages.
