What an interesting year, 2020. Are you in Ljubljana right now, binge-watching recommended tv-series, taking extended walks into its many green areas and parks, enjoying the tourist-free streets and having riverside coffees 2m apart from your neighbour? Considering to visit when the coronavirus in Slovenia is over? In any case, this would be a good time to read up on it, dream about it, practice saying its name, like the silent lover waiting for you out there, mask and gloves, ready for the platonic relationship that is the reality of social isolation in the world right now. As Slovenia becomes one of the current coronavirus success stories, the platonic may turn into the more concrete sooner than one would imagine.
As always we've packed our current issue with useful travel info and updates as to what regards the virus epidemic, a special feature on Best Events in Ljubljana During Lockdown, recommendations on local food, drink and anything else you set your mind to delivery and a modest list of local businesses to support. While we wait and see how the epidemic will play out over the summer, we do look forward to some annual events like The Slovenia Restaurants Awards that will once again single out those best from the crowd of most distinguished contestants.
Ljubljana being voted for Best Municipality to be Quarantined In in our most serious Best of Slovenia 2020 (Limited by Coronavirus) competition is just another telltale sign of the comfort and energy of this vibrant little capital. In any event, thanks for reading, and if you've got any feedback, we'd love to hear your thoughts on Facebook, Instagram or old-fashioned email.
A free PDF of our latest guide to Ljubljana can be found here, and with over 400 distribution points in the city (and surrounding area) you’re never far from a print copy.
