Es war besonders interessant.

vor allem is required, e.g.

Vor allem wenn es regnet. Especially when it rains.

vor allem im Sommer especially in (the) summer

Adverbial expressions of speci c time such as ‘last week’, ‘next year’, ‘this weekend’, ‘every day’, of which there are many, are always expressed in the accusative case. This is only obvious, however, with masculine nouns. The determiners and adjectival endings in the nom. and acc. in such cases are identical for feminine and neuter nouns, e.g. letzte Woche (f.), nächstes Jahr (n.), dieses Wochenende (n.), jeden Tag (m.), nächsten Mittwoch (m.).
