Seek out landscaped areas with views of the surrounding hills. The parks in Radol'ca contain contemporary art works by local and foreign artists. During a walk through Radovljica and the surrounding smaller villages, you will see numerous monuments to important people that hailed from Radovljica and diverse reminders of the past.

 

Villas with wonderful secessionist and historic elements can be found beside the main road towards Lesce, whilst some close to the old town centre are the work of the Slovenian architect Ivan Vurnik.
