The most prestigious hall in Slovenia

At the start of February, Cankarjev dom hosted the main evening event of Conventa, the leading trade show in the regional meetings industry.

“Even though the event is boutique and attendeed by 350 guests, we suggested the organisers of the event to celebrate their 15th anniversary in the Gallus Hall, which boasts the largest floor in Slovenia,” said Maja Vidergar, Congress Marketing Specialist in Cankarjev dom.

Of all the halls, the largest, Gallus Hall, stands out and hosts the most demanding and resounding stage events in Slovenia. The after-movie of the spectacular evening shows the innovative design of Gallus Hall and its incredible features. See the video below.

World-classic concerts and theatre shows

Gallus Hall is named after the Slovenian composer Jakob Petelin Gallus (1550-1591), who worked in Moravia and Bohemia, later Czechoslovakia, and was world famous, especially for his extensive opus of motets and madrigals. This magnificent space with its diverse auditorium and two balconies, yet with a sophisticated and minimalist style, is surrounded by white marble walls, whilst the wealth of technical resources enables the execution of the most demanding stage performances.

The stage in Gallus Hall is suitable for hosting almost every kind of show: from symphony and chamber music concerts in the acoustic shell, jazz and other kinds of music concerts, opera, ballet and dance performances, to the most challenging theatre and multimedia shows. It is also suitable for large congress events and ceremonies. The hall’s acoustics have been praised by numerous visiting artists who are accustomed to performing in the most prestigious world venues. The magnificent organ, made in the Berlin workshop of Karl Schuke, also adds a special charm.
