The National Assembly Building (Slovene: Zgradba Državnega zbora, also Stavba Državnega zbora) in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is a modernist palace housing the legislature of Slovenia. Built between 1954 and 1959 by the architect Vinko Glanz (sl), it is a three-storey building with an area of 2,200 square metres (24,000 sq ft). It is located on the Republic Square in the center of Ljubljana. Despite its name, the building houses both the National Assembly (lower house) and the National Council (upper house) of the legislature. The building is an officially protected monument, led in records as the People's Assembly Building of the Republic of Slovenia (Skupščina Republike Slovenije). It was opened on 19 February 1959 as the Palace of the People's Assembly (Palača Ljudske skupščine), because it was built in the time when the Socialist Republic of Slovenia had a People's Assembly. It is also colloquially referred to as the Parliament (Parlament).

The parliamentary building in Ljubljana houses both chambers of the bicameral legislature. The plain appearance of the building which was also used as a meeting place during the Socialist Republic of Slovenia is contrasted by the figurative decoration of the portal, depicting workers as lively sculptures.
