Most of the little European towns/ villages are beautiful and picturesque, and Radov is one of the prettiest I have seen. It's tiny little decorated shops, the flowers in the balconies, the view of the mountains, the gorgeous Church and some amazing little restaurants. It's a must stop place between Ljubljana & Bled.

Radovljica Old Town is a small quaint Medieval town worth a visit if you are in the area. It is one of the Slovenia's best-conserved medieval towns.

The town plan was laid in the 13th century, but the most prolific period of building was the 16th century. Walk among the Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque mansions and arcaded courtyards. Meander the streets and admire the frescoes adorning many facades and small windows and portals built from green stone.

Attractions within this area include a gingerbread museum, a beekeeper museum, a municipal museum, and dozens of shops, pubs, and restaurants. We had lunch at one of the historic inns.

Radovljica’s old town is one of the best preserved medieval town structures in Slovenia with houses dating from 15th and 16th century. It is strategically located on top a natural promontory, with a varied selection of authentically preserved architecture, as well as museums, galleries and other attractions.

Must-sees include: ( and these are all located convenient to one another)

The Radovljica Mansion a beautifully renovated manor with a Baroque hall, where concerts, receptions, weddings and other events are held. This beautiful building also houses the Municipality Museum representing life and work of an important 18th century Slovene Anton Tomaž Linhart, born in Radovljica and also the
Museum of Apiculture offering wonderful insights into the rich history of Slovene beekeeping tradition (1st floor of Radovljica Mansion). In the same building there is also the Šivec House Art Gallery one of the best examples of late Gothic urban architecture in Slovenia.

On the same street there is the Live Gingerbread Workshop living museum, where you can get a guided tour and explanation in English and other languages and see staff producing the red traditional gingerbread hearts.

Close by the Gothic church of St Peter and various church buildings. An awesome set of structures.

The Tourist office is near the entrance from the new town..

We walked to the Old Town several times during our stay. We enjoyed several restaurants and an ice cream shop. We especially enjoyed the Thursday night evening street fair. Our family enjoyed a few drinks, some ice cream and the music.

This is a lovely, well kept town. Truly worth a visit. If time permits, visit the church and wonderful gingerbread shop. We also had a fantastic dinner in the evening at gostilna Kunstelj that has been around since the 1800’s. Just a beautiful, picturesque town...

We stopped here for a short visit on the way back from Bled and Vintner Gorge. It is a peaceful quiet old village with beautiful unique architecture. Just wandered down the old town with a stop at a cafe. Ahhhh so quiet and very few tourists.

A beautiful, quaint little town full of character. Park in the free for 3 hours just outside the old town and wander along, we stopped for coffee and loved just sitting in the relative peace of the town square. Great to wander around and also enjoy the views over to Triglav.

Radovljica is such a charming town with small craft boutiques, art galleries, cafes and restraurants. The church and the square are marvelous- visit the church, because it is just utterly beautiful. Houses are also beautiful and old, very historical. The best part was the atmosphere: it was fun and charming during the chocolate festival: all the vendors in the streets, live music in a relaxed atmosphere. It was a pity that we had to leave, could've stayed a bit longer.
