As part of the Julian Alps community, Radovljica is hosting a presentation in Washington of the region’s cuisine.
In the week from 11th-16th May the Julian Alps community is holding a promotional event in the capital of the USA. In addition to representatives of Tourism Radovljica, three of the region’s top chefs are present at the event: Uroš Štefelin from Vila Podvin (Radovljica), Jože Godec from Pension Resje (Bohinj) and Tomaž Sovdat from Dobra Vila (Bovec).
The team headed off to Washington in response to an invitation from the Slovenian ambassador to the USA, Stanislav Vidovič, who first hosted representatives of Radovljica last year at the EU Open House event, which is organised annually in May by ambassadors of the European Union in Washington. This year the promotion of the Julian Alps began at this event, which took place on 11th May, where the region was presented as one of beekeeping and honey.
From 14th-17th May, five culinary events will be taking place at the Slovenian embassy aimed at tourists, tourist agencies, influencers, and spouses of ambassadors of European countries, as well as senators and members of congress.
The Julian Alps Association, of which the tourist destination of Radol'ca is also a member, is in the process of putting together a long-distance hiking trail. Part of the trail leads through the Municipality of Radovljica.
