Cankarjev dom

The Gallus Hall is the largest hall in the Cankarjev Dom congress and cultural centre, with a dynamically designed auditorium capable of accommodating audiences of up to 1,541 in its stalls and two balconies. It offers excellent conditions for staging a wide variety of events and for realising the boldest creative and organisational ideas.

The hall is named after Jacobus Gallus (1550–91), a Slovene composer who also worked in Bohemia and Moravia and is chiefly remembered for his motets and madrigals.

The acoustics of the Gallus Hall have been praised by numerous artists used to performing at the most prestigious international venues. The hall is given a particular charm by the magnificent pipe organ built by Karl Schuke in Berlin.

With a stage consisting of three sections that can be moved independently of each other, the hall can be used for events of practically every kind: symphonic and chamber concerts in the “acoustic shell”, jazz and other concerts, opera, ballet and dance, and the most demanding theatrical and multimedia productions. It is also an excellent venue for major conferences and ceremonial events.
