The charming and quaint town of Radovljica lies on a terrace of the Sava river, just a few kilometres from world-renowned Bled. The heart and soul of the town is Linhart Square, which is one of the most beautiful old town centres in Slovenia.


There are several museums in the square as well as excellent restaurants and a selection of accommodation. Next to the old town centre there is a small well-kept park, which is the remains of the former baroque park. Along the main road through Radovljica towards the swimming pool there are a series of secession villas, among them the Radovljica municipal building with its colourful bee-themed decoration above the entrance. Due to this decor, it is known as 'Čebelica' (the little bee).


Radovljica's sports infrastructure and excellent position along transport corridors and close to rivers and mountains offers unlimited possibilites for recreation year-round.


Throughout the year a series of interesting events, performances and shows take place. The most notable and widely known is the Chocolate Festival, which takes place every year in April. For over a decade lovers of old music have been enjoying the summer Radovljica Festival.


Radovljica is the administrative and educational centre of the Municipality of Radovljica. The town's most important citizens are the late Anton Tomaž Linhart, histiographer and playwright, and the late Ivan Vurnik, architect. In the old town centre there are monuments to the Radovljica-born benefactress Josipina Hočevar and the art historian Cene Avguštin.

If Slovenes had to choose what was dearest to their heart, they would place Mt. Triglav on the very altar of their homeland. If they were to look further for the altar table, their attention would be drawn to a lush strip of land stretching between the Sava River and the villages of Žirovnica and Begunje.
