Cankarjev dom cultural and congress centre is Slovenia's largest convention, congress and culture centre. The building was designed by the architect Edvard Ravnikar and was built at the southern edge of Republic Square in Ljubljana between 1977 and 1982. The centre is named after the Slovene writer and social-democratic politician Ivan Cankar (1876–1918). A monument, sculpted by Slavko Tihec, stands in front of the building in the form of a multi-layer metal cube depicting the face of Cankar.

Located in the centre of Ljubljana, Cankarjev dom is next to Republic Square, in immediate vicinity of the Parliament and city sights. It easily accessible by bus or taxi from the main bus or railway station. The centre is 1.6km from the main railway station, so would take about 20 minutes to walk.
