An autumn trip to Radol'ca

01.09.2023 08:00

Autumn is a wonderful time to explore Slovenia, whether for outdoor activities or learning about cultural heritage, and not forgetting a visit to great restaurants. Below you can read our latest suggestions for an autumn trip in the surroundings of Radovljica.

1. Head into the forest for autumn colours

What is the most beautiful feature of the forest during autumn? Is it the colourful treetops or the sounds of leaves rustling beneath your feet? Is it chestnuts or the joy of picking mushrooms? Whatever the reason, if you are searching for great forest paths, then you can find quite a number of them in Radol'ca. Among them we suggest the Lamberg Trail in Begunje. The trail leads through the forest from the Krpin recreation centre to Kamen Castle, while you can also follow it further through the Draga valley to the Gostišče Draga restaurant.

2. Head to the hills for views

In autumn there is still time before the first snowfall to conquer some of Slovenia's hills and mountains. Mount Begunščica lures hikers to its peak, while there are numerous shorter trails that also afford wonderful views. You may already be familiar with St. Peter's Trail that leads to the church above Begunje, and from Kropa you can hike up to the Church of St. Primus and Felician on Jamnik. The trail leads through a wonderful forest and on reaching the end you are rewarded with stunning views of the well-known church and far-reaching views of the whole of Gorenjska.

The old town of Radovljica is a pleasant place to spend quality time regardless of the weather. On a beautiful autumn day you can sit on the terrace of one of the cafes, while the autumn rain is the perfect time to visit one of Radovljica's museums. There is a really diverse choice; the Museum of Apiculture, the Municipal Museum, the Pharmacy and Alchemy Museum, the Lectar Workshop and Museum, and the Šivec House Gallery. At the latter there is a photography exhibition by Wilhelm Heiliger on view until 10th November. Families have until 4th November to try out the special 'Follow a Bee Through Radovljica' adventure.

The excellent cuisine alone is a reason to visit Radol'ca, and the great food available in our restaurants and inns will hit the spot even more after one of the above-mentioned activities! Every year in November the restaurants and inns that are part of Taste Radol'ca will be offering special menus as part of the 'Month of Local Cuisine'. There are six participating restaurants and inns in the Radovljica area. Each offers a menu consisting of at least 3 courses, created exclusively using locally sourced and grown ingredients, for a set price of €26 per person.
