Cankarjev dom

Cankarjev dom (CD) Cultural and Congress Centre is located in the centre of Ljubljana, at a walking distance from several hotels and the attractive Old Town. With 22 multi-purpose halls and function rooms and a maximum capacity of 2,000 delegates in the plenary hall, it is the largest purpose-built congress centre in Slovenia in terms of auditorium-style seating and among our most established venues on the international conference market.

CD features a well-conceived design aligned with contemporary functional and aesthetic criteria as well as extraordinary acoustic properties of its halls. The venue, which has a total surface area of 36,000 m² and is able to welcome up to 5,000 visitors simultaneously, also provides extensive space for commercial or art exhibitions.

In keeping with the green policy, CD has adopted energy-saving measures and integrated new, environmentally-friendly technologies and materials. Additional contribution to the quality of life in the city is the installation of beehives on the roof of the congress centre.
