Best of Ljubljana Culture 2023

29 Sep 2023

Welcome to the annual Best of Ljubljana Awards voting!

Ljubljana may have a shade less than 300,000 inhabitants, but when it comes to culture the city truly hits above its weight. This is thanks to many factors, including its historical importance, its modern status as an EU capital city, its youthful population and plethora of students, as well as its geographical proximity to other major cities. Anecdotally speaking, Slovenes also just seem to be an artsy, cultured people.
