Radlje ob Dravi is a kilometre and a half long town that was originally settled in the Antiquities. Today Radlje is the administrative, economic and industrial centre of the middle region of the Drava Valley. Villa Radela was first mentioned in documents in 1161 and as a marketplace in 1268. The most respectable age of the town is also supported by finds dating back to Roman times. Today, Radlje still retains its marketplace origins. A number of smaller neighbouring villages are also worthy of a visit, namely: Brezni vrh, Dobrava, Kozji vrh, Radelca and Remšnik. The Middle Ages appearance and feeling of the town were influenced by the Dominican monastery (1250) which nestled in the Kozjan hills, and was part of the church of the Annunciation of Mary. In 1782, Joseph II disbanded the monastery. Later a hospital was housed in the remodelled monastery buildings, and today there are residential apartments there. The statue of Mary which stood in front of the church and monastery was moved to the main square, Glavni trg, where the church of St. Michael stands. On the side of the hill Perkolica, there are stone statues depicting the suffering of Calvary, the work of J.J. Schoya. Of particular interest in the area are the caves in the side of the Perkolica hill: Palijeva luknja (hole) and Huda luknja.
