This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Radovljica.
Radovljica, Slovenia is located in the north of the country, about fifty kilometres from Lljubljana. There is a train running here from the capital, which also connects the place to Tarvisio in Italy. Radovljica's popularity as a tourist destination is primarily due to its closeness to Lake Bled, a lake with a tiny island, set amongst breathtaking scenery.
On one side, the town is bordered by the Karawanks mountain range, while on the other it has the Radovljica Plain, so it has something for everybody no matter what kind of scenery they prefer. Moreover, the Sava Dolinka and the Sava Bohinjka rivers also meet here, providing many nice places to walk on the rivers' shores.
Radovljica is a small but extremely well-conserved Medieval town that has enough to offer for a day trip. You can walk among Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque mansions and arcaded courtyards and admire frescos and the traditional green-stone architecture. There are a few fun and innovative museums to look at as well. One is dedicated to local beekeeping while in another one local women in traditional costumes show you the secrets of gingerbread-making using historical tools. Moreover, it offers some monuments of historic importance, with the Andrejc Field concealed grave commemorating the prisoners of World War II.
Buses to Bled run frequently and only take fifteen minutes. Basing yourself at a Radovljica, Slovenia hostel can be cheaper and provide a less touristy experience than staying in Bled, but as it's only six kilometres away, you will not miss out on anything in the popular destination. The options for a Radovljica, Slovenia hostel are scarce, but what exists welcomes young and older tourists alike. However, there are also plenty of hostels in Bled to choose from and Jesenice offers a wide choice of accommodation as well. Nevertheless, if you opt for a hostel in Ljubljana you can also easily organise a day trip here.
