The story of Iliria speaks of enthusiasm. It was built in the far 1929, and one half of the necessary funds was contributed by ingeneer Stanko Bloudek, the father of the Slovenian sport infrastructure, out of his own pocket.
Ilirija was the home of swimming sport, and a special place for socializing, and probably the recollection of that fact encouraged the swimming club carrying the same name, the local community, and the Helios company, to invest 230,000 euros and thus prevent the recurrence of the cases of Kolezija before last year's renovation, or the Bežigrad stadium. On the other hand, the renovation means that the construction of an indoor swimming pool, and a parking house on the outskirts of Tivoli will be postponed for quite a long time.
The swimming pool is nicely renovated, with a platform, terraces, and everything a pool needs. It will be opened to swimmers on Saturday. The Ilirija swimming pool complex, hidden behind billboards, will remain the cheapest of all Ljubljana swimming pool complexes.
