This year Grand Hotel Union is celebrating its 110th anniversary. Hotel officially opened its doors back in 1905 and according to the contemporary newspapers it was one of the largest, most modern and most sophisticated hotels in the southeastern part of Europe. Even today the level of fascination remains the same. In spite of all current large-scale, modern hotel constructions Grand Hotel Union remains unique. It is the first of its kind, a unique hotel consisting of fascinating chapters that make up a novel with count- less sequels.


The main focus of their latest renovations of the congress centre was the technical equipment. With the new purchase of the state-of-the-art Panasonic 3D projector Union Hotels are now one of the first five providers in Europe to offer the first-rate multimedia experience which is music to the ears of the organizers of technically demanding conferences and congresses.


The pride and joy of the hotel is a beau- tiful Art Nouveau Union Hall that can accommodate up to 1000 guests

While still keeping alive the long established tradition and refinement, which are always at the forefront, the cook team from hotels restaurants have been following the latest trends and spiced up the dishes with a great deal of imagination. While the fine-dining Smrekarjev Hram restaurant is known for its freshly innovative dishes with a touch of tradition combined with modern trends, the Union Garden restaurant in the summer-time focuses on the concept of Union’s nostalgia that brings time to a halt.

In over a century of its existence, the Grand hotel Union was an important co-creator of the political and social life in the capital and in the wider Ljubljana region. In its rich history the hotel witnessed many important events and hosted many famous people – actor and director Orson Welles in 1979, the American president Bill Clinton and Hilary Clinton in 1999, the spiritual leader of Tibet Dalai Lama in 2002 and the British Queen Elizabeth and her husband in 2008.
