Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016, is a city with a green soul and a sustainable vision of development. It boasts excellently preserved green spaces and nature even in the heart of the city centre. It also offers several experiences that are difficult to imagine anywhere else. Explore the city by bike and discover its centre from the unique perspective of a paddle-board on the Ljubljanica River.

Ljubljana is a creative city, where culture is basically the way of life. It hosts numerous festivals of various genres, from one of the oldest European summer festivals to well-established festivals of jazz, world music and street theatre. There are also numerous alternative events, particularly at the famous Metelkova alternative culture centre.

Cankarjev dom believes that cultural, artistic and scientific creativity meets the basic condition for attaining spiritual freedom and richer spiritual lives of people and social development.

The cultural and congress centre presents, produces, co-produces, organises and provides cultural and artistic, congress and other events, state ceremonies, exhibitions and festivals. Since CD is mostly a cultural centre, over two thirds of the available halls are annually reserved for culture and the arts.

With its programme CD has been attempting at enriching the quality of lives, to form, foster and effectuate cultural and wider national identity and educate the young people in culture and the arts.

CD cooperates with similar cultural institutions at home and abroad in the realisation of contemporary cultural and artistic projects. It has been endeavouring to contribute to the openness of the capital city with its versatile cultural, artistic and scientific events of internationally resounding character. CD believes that Ljubljana is compelling enough as regards its history, tourism and culture to become one of the most significant European cultural and congress centres.
