You can join concerts of all kinds, opera performances, exhibitions of paintings, architecture, posters, photography. You can visit cultural fairs, different congresses, all together in one house. Architecture is little too decorated but position of the building is five minutes from parliament, three minutes from big garage and two minutes from a bank.

This building didn't seem to be open when I walked past. It's a modern concrete structure in a very functionalist style, not really to my liking with too much concrete. Perhaps there's more of interest inside.

There are a lot of halls in the building, but the concert hall is extraordinary. We had a great concert of Beczala, the Polish tenor. Excellent accustics, and very good seats.

It is a pity that the leaflets, explaining the musicians and conductor are not in English but only in Slovene. This could be improved!! There are quite often in the first level hall photographic exhibitions which you can see in the concert... More

Not very nice building but this is the biggest cultural center in Slovenia- Lots of projects, performances, exibitions....so it is worth to check out their web site. The building it self is not worth a visit - just if you find to be in the vicinity
