Stop At: Radovljica Old Town, Linhartov trg 9, Radovljica 4240 Slovenia
We'll go on, following the Caesar Road (named in the times where there were no railways yet and all main roads led from Vienna to Trieste). People used to transport different goods across these roads, with the most important being the post carriages. At the local taverns, people got food and accommodation, and to this day, you can see where they could tie their horses for the duration of their stay. Caesar Road is ideal for cycling as it's secluded from the busy motorways.
Through the Nova vas (New village) we'll bike to the old city of Radovljica. Among the houses that remained from the 16th, 17th and 18th century, there's also the Radovljica castle, which is the largest building at the Linhart square. Inside, you will find the Beekeeping Museum, a rich tradition of Slovenian beekeeping, where you will get to know the most typical bee locations and beekeeping tools, while the biology chamber will show you the life and work of our authentic bee species Kranjska sivka (in summer time you can even observe it in her natural habitat). At the art area, you can admire the phenomenon of Slovenian folk culture Slovenia is specifically known for – painted beehive panels.
After having visited the Museum, we will take a breath to rest a bit on the picturesque Linhart square, where we get the wonderful view of the river Sava valley and Julius Alps from. Later, we'll continue with cycling down the hill towards river Sava and to the Selo pri Bledu, where the beekeepers are already waiting for us there!
