Culinary Walk Radnička
If the road takes you southeast from the city center, or you just happen to have a lot of time on your hands, take some time to explore Radnička bars and restaurants. The street got its name because it was a factory zone back in the day, gathering all of the city workforce (Radnička means worker street). Today it is a business area filled with office workers. And they have to eat and appreciate quality and reasonable prices.
Vegan, vegetarian and cold pressed lunches to go
Juice Box on Radnička is a place familiar to all looking to live and eat healthily.
