Best of Ljubljana 2022

10 Oct 2022
What started as a one-off competition for our own amusement (and love of alliteration) with the Battle of the Burek back in 2011, Best of Ljubljana has grown into on of the city's most prestigious awards. Running for more than a decade and covering the same diverse selection of categories as our ever-popular Ljubljana In Your Pocket guides, the competitions regularly received tens of thousands of individual votes from the public every year. Of course that was before the Covid-19 pandemic ground them to a halt, as it did for most things in Slovenia, Europe and around the world.

But like that inspirational immortal bird of Greek mythology, our Best of Ljubljana competition has risen from the ashes that were the years 2020 and 2021, and is back and better than ever for 2022. And what proof is there of this lofty, cliché-riddled statement we've just made? Well, for starters, we've got our first ever annual Best of Ljubljana mini map guide, which you can find at various distribution points around town, or in more tree-friendly digital form on this and many other pages right here on inyourpocket.com.

The guide, and this article you're reading right now, contain some of the finalists in the major categories - from restaurants and bars to shops and sights - with public voting scheduled to take place later this year, after things have once again returned to 'normal'. Or at least that's the plan. We'd be fools if we claimed to have any certainty in what the future holds, and at the risk of sounding arrogant, we feel quite strongly that we're not fools. Any questions or comments about the Best of Ljubljana competition, the mini guide map, Greek mythology or the meaning of life, please feel free to email us at ljubljana@inyourpocket.com.
