Sokolski dom Culture Centre 01.jpg

Sokolski dom Culture Centre reopened in 2009 as a completely renovated cultural centre in the medieval town of Škofja Loka. In the centre there are two halls which can serve as a gallery, the large Crystal Hall for concerts, and the terrace garden for receptions. Its lively programme comprises solo exhibitions by Slovene artists as well as top quality jazz, choir and chamber music concerts (Carmina Slovenica, La Chambre du Roi with Stefano Bet, Domen Marinčič and Tomaž Sevšek), usually co-organised with the local Public Fund for Cultural Activities of the Republic of Slovenia.


Sokolski dom was established in 1922 by the Sokol gymnastic club. Later on it has served as a provisional performing arts venue, enthusiastically maintained by the Lubnik Choir. The Municipality of Škofja Loka has renovated the centre with the funds obtained from EEA Norway Grants (Lively Old Town project) and the European Fund for Regional Development.

Gallery programme

The gallery programme in the main exhibition space kicked off with illustrations by Zvonko Čoh, followed by paintings by Jurij Kalan. The 20th anniversary of the death of Ive Šubic (1922–1989), a Partisan, local painter, graphic and illustration artist was commemorated with an exhibition of rarely seen selected drawings.
