For most events, free cloakrooms are provided in which visitors may leave their outer garments, umbrellas and luggage. 

Please be informed that no umbrellas or luggage are allowed in auditoria. When cloakroom service is not available, a coat stand is installed outside the hall. 

The cloakrooms are guarded. We do not assume responsibility for the articles that have been misidentified, lost or forgotten. We advise against depositing valuable articles. 


Should you happen to be late, kindly wait until a short break during the first and second part of the concerts and until performances’ the main break.

Latecomers at film projections can sit in the gallery five minutes after the beginning of screening if these seats are not occupied. 
The same applies to theatre performances without a break. 

In any case, you are kindly requested to follow the ushers’ instructions. 

Photography and video or audio recording may occur at Cankarjev dom events.

Flowers for the performers

Please give the bouquet that you have brought for the performers to the usher before the performance. 

Medical help

In case of medical emergency, please contact the nearest usherette or security officer who will call an ambulance immediately.

Concerned for the safety of our visitors we have installed the automatic defibrillator in Cankarjev dom. Defibrillator is a device that performs defibrillation on the chambers of the heart and counters the onset of ventricular fibrillation. By applying a shock to the entire heart muscle, it uniformly clears the heart's electrical system, in order to stop the life threatening heart rhythm disturbances. They are now available for use by persons with minimal medical training to provide life-saving cardiac care when the emergency medical team is on the way.


We would like to express our deepest appreciation to Krka, d. d., for a most generous donation.
