One has to put in a medium physical effort to manage the road towards Radovica but the toil is quickly forgotten once you climb the 17-meter observation tower and marvel at the magnificent view that stretches all the way to the Klek mountain. On the road back to the starting point you pass through exquisite viticultural areas.
