Perhaps the best ambassador for Radovljica in English is Adele Gray of Adele in Slovenia, who writes of the place: “It’s not too big but also not too small and occupies an idyllic location on the broad plains nestled between the Karavanke range, the Jelovica plateau and the Julian Alps. The motorway is on the doorstep but not obtrusively so. There’s a cinema, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a medical centre, numerous cafes and restaurants, and a small but sufficient range of shops. The medieval old town centre is one of the three best preserved of its kind in Slovenia and, most importantly for me, there are endless places to walk, hike, cycle and enjoy nature.” (With more of her thoughts on the area to be found here.)
