This charming circular route leads from the town of Radovljica across the Sava, and then on through the forest to the sun-drenched uplands. Walk across the flowering meadows and enjoy the views of Bled, Mt Triglav and the Karavanke Range from the ruins of Lipnica Castle.
The route follows the trails, which for centuries linked the estates of Radovljca's gentry along the Sava, and introduces visitors to the cultural and natural heritage of the Lipnica Valley. At information points, the history of Radovljica and Lipnica Castle is explained, as well as the features of the surrounding forest, the river and the geological phenomena.
This trail, which brings its visitors closer to nature, is best combined with a visit to the picturesque iron-forging village of Kamna Gorica.
