Cankarjev dom – Cultural and Congress Centre Ljubljana and it Grand Reception Hall are located right in the heart of Ljubljana, with an easy and comfortable access to any of Slovenia’s capital sightseeings as well as important buildings and locations.



One of the finest venues of Cankarjev dom and owing to its soaring ceilings one of the most spacious and brightest halls in Slovenia, the Grand Reception Hall was devised as a convergence point between the City’s green area (Council of Europe Park) and the Republic Square envisioned as the Ljubljana Gateway by the architect Edo Ravnikar.

The Cankarjev dom Congress Centre’s team cooperates with three catering providers: Jezeršek Catering, Maxi Catering, and Vivo Catering. According to the client’s wishes, the client can either arrange all of the catering with one of these three providers, or the CD staff will do it for them.


Since Cankarjev dom is one of the most important Slovenian cultural centres that bursts at the seams with the offer of arts and culture, there is no need to look for incentive programmes elsewhere. Everything is right there, just a few steps away: concerts, exhibitions, movie festivals, theatre and dance performances, etc.
