Above the confluence of the Sava Bohinjka and the Sava Dolinka stands a town with numerous preserved monuments of civil engineering.
The most important are the Chuch of St. Peter with the vicarage, the manor with apicultural museum, Šivec house and the only preserved defence shaft in Slovenia. In Radovljica, the father of Slovenian theatre Anton Tomaž Linhart was born (1756-1795).
The town of Radovljica has the largest number of sunny days in the Gorenjska region. The magnificent medieval Old Town of Radovljica, its numerous museums, galleries, festivals and events, the exquisite cuisine on offer in its traditional inns, and the outstanding opportunities available for sport and recreation are all reasons to visit this charming town that sits atop a pier above the Sava river.
Explore the charming medieval architecture of Radovljica Mansion, stroll past the Secessionist villas, take a leisurely walk along the last preserved medieval town moat in Slovenia, or take some time out to nurse a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in Linhart Square. Take advantage of a pleasant day in the spring or winter to walk along the nearby hiking trails, spend a hot summer's day at Radovljica's swimming pool, or visit some of Radovljica's museums and galleries on a rainy autumn afternoon.
