December festive atmosphere in the old town centre of Radovljica.
A wide variety of festive events will take place this December in Radovljica.
The festive season kicks off on 2nd December with the switching on of the Christmas lights, which will take place as part of the closing Taste Radol'ca event. This will be just the start of the St. Nicholas weekend, when the Radol'ca Market will take place in Linhart Square, this time featuring a variety of entertainment for children, a St. Nicholas handicraft fair in Radovljica Manor, and a visit from St. Nicholas himself.
Thereafter, every weekend throughout the month of December there will be an advent market with workshops for children, street shows, and on 23rd and 30th December also concerts and food from Taste Radol'ca.
As in the past, visitors to the festively decorated old town will be delighted by its natural green décor and woven willow. Added touches include wonderful knitted balls and chandeliers as well as a fairytale adventure through the town.
