About Radovljica ...

Atop a pier above the Sava, the town development began in the thirteenth century, reaching its climax in the sixteenth century. The former design of the town, with administrative buildings on one side of the square and crafts and trade buildings on the other, can still be seen today. During the passage from the fifteenth to the sixteenth century, Radovljica’s walls featured as many as 16 defence towers and a moat.

Nature

The untouched nature, picturesque green valleys, sun-drenched fields and colourful meadows, lively mountain pastures and the high peaks of the Karavanke Range, the vast spruce forests of the Jelovica Plateau, not to mention the rich flora and fauna. Nature with its endless curiosities offers countless opportunities for relaxation and sports in the fresh air. The area between the high Karavanke Range with Mt. Begunjščica on the northern edge of Radol'ca and the wooded Jelovica Plateau on its southern side is occupied by the Lipnica Valley and the Sava Valley, as well as the hilly uplands and the Radovljica Plain.
