The village of Gradenc consists of only a little over 20 houses and about 60 inhabitants. The people are friendly and most speak a word of English, especially the youth. You can make lovely walks along the fields and through the woods. For those in good shape, cycling is also a possibility. There is a lot of wildlife in the area so the chances of spotting deer, foxes, weasels, badgers and birds of prey are very high. Even bears and wolves are occasionally seen.
Žužemberk is 5 kilometers away and there you will find all the necessities such as 2 supermarkets, bakery, post office, restaurant, pizzeria, even service gas station, doctor and dentist. The highlight is the castle and the river Krka. Here you can swim, canoe, whitewater raft or fly fish. From Gradenc it is a nice walk of a good hour, on the road or through the forest.
