Ljubljana, March 4, 2020 - Grand Hotel Union, the historical landmark of the Union Hotels Collection, will re-introduce its Grand first floor in 2020. The venue is undergoing a major renovation which is setting the future design and style of its interior to bring a dash of freshness and modernity to the hotel’s original design.

The best-known secession movement was the Vienna Secession formed in 1897, and included Gustav Klimt, who favored the ornate Art Nouveau style over the prevailing styles of the time.
