Zgornja Radovna (pronounced [ˈzɡoːɾnja ˈɾaːdɔu̯na]) is a dispersed settlement in the Municipality of Kranjska Gora, northwestern Slovenia, traditionally belonging to the Upper Carniola region. The village lies at the juncture of the Kot Valley and the northern part of the Krma Valley (i.e. the Lower Krma Valley - Slovene: Spodnja Krma). The Radovna River, a tributary of the Sava Dolinka, emerges under the Jutrova Skala Slope (Jutrova skala) in the northeastern part of the settlement.

Pocar Farm[edit]

The Pocar Farm (the living building)

The Pocar Farm (Pocarjeva domačija) in Zgornja Radovna is one of the oldest traditional farmhouses in Triglav National Park, with the date 1775 engraved on one of its beams and a written document from 1672. It is one of the best preserved examples of the traditional 18th-century Alpine architecture and has been protected as a cultural monument of national significance. The farm now hosts an ethnographic museum and an information point of Triglav National Park.[2]
