Best of Culture in Ljubljana 2018

30 Oct 2018

Every year on 8 February, Slovenia celebrates its National Day of Culture in honour of the great 19th-century poet and cultural iconic France Prešeren, which is not only a work-free holiday but among other events and festivities the vast majority of the country's cultural institutions offer free admission to the public. At Ljubljana In Your Pocket each year we mark the event by asking our readers help us select the best of the city's culture, and 2018 has special significance, as it's been officially recognised as the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

To mark the occasion, we pulled out all the stops and expanded our usual handful of categories to a total of nine, in order to more fully cover the the diverse cultural scene in the capital city. Voting took place from 17 – 31 January, and the results were announced at a special event hosted by the Slovene Ethnographic Museum on 7 February. Thanks to all the voters and congratulations to all of the winners and finalists!
