The Linhart Square is the old town center of Radovljica. The houses were mostly built between the 16th and 18th century.

The square is named after Anton Tomaž Linhart, Slovenia's first playwright, who was born in one of the square's houses. Linhart is also considered the father of Slovene historiography: he was the first historian to write of all Slovenes as a unit rather than focusing on single historical provinces. He also set the foundations of Slovene ethnography.

On the right is the Radovljica Manor. It was built in the 13th century by the Counts of Ortenburg. It was thoroughly renovated in the 16th century by its then-owners, the Counts of Dietrichstein. Now, the manor is home to the Radovljica music school, Apiculture Museum and the Baroque Hall.

The old photo can be found in the Radovljica Digital Archive (Digitalni arhiv Radovljice). The author of the photograph is not mentioned in the archive. The photo was donated to the archive by Lenka Lapuh.
