One of the goals of the Union Hotels is to preserve and foster the integration of Ljubljana’s cultural life. Grand Hotel Union, a 110 years old hotel in the very heart of the city center, is not only offering top quality accommodation and congress but is also taking care of its guests in providing an unforgettable local experience.

History was written in many unforgettable stories that took place in Kavarna Union or the Union Hall. Many artists (among others also Rihard Jakopič, Ivan Tavčar, Ivan Cankar) whose works are today the cultural legacy of Slovenia, were meeting there and making history. Therefore, the Union Hotels are putting a lot of effort in keeping this unique cultural junction as a source of local cultural life.

Union Hotels in partnership with Ljubljana Festival this winter organized the Winter Festival. Three concerts of top performers were recently successfully completed in the Grand Union Hall, which is still considered an exceptional concert venue. British violinist Nigel Kennedy, Mexican tenorist Ramon Vargas and New Swing Quartet, that reunited after a ten-year break, are the names of this Winter Festival that contributes to the development of Ljubljana’s cultural tourism potential.

The plans are already focused on the future and on the creation of fresh, innovative cultural content with a wish to inspire tourists to discover the cultural wealth of the Slovenian capital and extend the length of their stay.
