The very recently renovated and reopened creative center Svicarija operates within the International Graphic Arts Center. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the center of Ljubljana, in the park Tivoli, overlooking the Ljubljana Castle.

Svicarija was initially a wooden guesthouse, opened in 1835, which soon became
the popular excursion point of the inhabitants and visitors of Ljubljana. In 1909, Hotel Tivoli, which was known as a gathering place for artists, bohemians, and workers, was operating in the same place. After the Second World War, numerous home artists with workshops found their place in the building

Today, this tradition continues, as the Svicarija Creative Center offers working and residential studios to domestic and  international artists.
