Ostrava’s Clarion, dominated by the queens and kings of ice, plays host to participants in the Europ
Ostrava has at least for short time become the capital city of European figure skating; the European Championship 2017 is taking place here from 25 to 29 January. The base for the athletes and realisation teams from more than thirty countries is the Clarion Congress Hotel Ostrava, which is benefiting from its proximity to the multifunctional Ostravar Arena, where the main programme of the four days of competition and the final exhibitions shall take place. The four-star hotel’s total capacity of 169 rooms has been reserved exclusively for the athletes. For instance, two-time world champion and four-time European champion, Javier Fernández of Spain, is preparing to defend his title here.
