1. Kranjska Klobasa (Carniolan sausage)
Carniolan sausage is the most known Slovenian food, that has been named »kranjska« for the first time in 1896, and then became protected in 2015. It originated in Gorenjska region, from where it has grown across the whole Slovenia. The storytellers of old Ljubljana consider it as an important part of the menu at ceremonial and important events.
