2017 Best of Culture in Ljubljana

03 May 2017

More than 2500 votes were cast and we now know what are Ljubljana's best cultural attractions. But before getting into the results, a big thanks to all you Ljubljana InYourPocket readers, locals and expats who shared your local knowledge and voted. While democracy gave the world some ‘unpresidented’ outcomes in 2016, you have never let us down, voting in droves for your favourite venues year after year and we remain convinced that you should have your say. This time we asked you where you get your cultural fix, namely, we are handing out our coveted InYourPocket Best of Ljubljana awards in four categories: Museums, Art Galleries, Commercial Galleries and Theatres.

As always the editorial team at InYourPocket - we also know a thing or two about what Ljubljana has to offer - compiled the short-lists of contenders that included renowned national institutions as well as fringe spaces for up and coming local artists, traditional museums and innovative interactive exhibitions, art dealers where we enjoy browsing but can’t afford anything and so too galleries that sell art by the pound, as well as theatres, where we have no grasp of what’s going on on-stage to venues that even children will enjoy the shows. Though compiling the short-lists was the end of our work, it was the public who picked the winners and without further rambling here are the final results:
