First Day Venue Unveiled
This elegant building represents one of the peaks of Slovenian post-war architecture!
Španski borci (en. Spanish fighters) is an architectural homage to Yugoslav volunteers, who fought against general Franco in the Spanish civil war. The building was designed by the architect Oton Jugovec and constructed in 1981. It is located in the east-central part of the city, the so-called Ljubljana Moste district, next to Tržnica Moste (en. Moste market). The Španski borci Cultural Centre is managed by EN-KNAP Productions.
All first day conference proceedings – the opening ceremony, panels and keynotes – will take place in the Španski borci Main Hall which seats up to 360 visitors. The day will conclude with a party in the in-house Internacionala Café with a cool terrace overlooking the city. Find out more about the programme on day 1!
The venue is easily accessible via public transport (check out buses no. 2, 9, 11, 20, 25). There is a Bicikelj stop (Ljubljana bike-sharing system) at Tržnica Moste and paid parking is available. Best of all, Španski borci venue is also reachable on foot: it should take less than half an hour to walk from the old town. Find out more about getting around town!
