On a medieval square of the Upper Carniolan town Radovljica, a name dating back to before 1333, stands a house with more than 500 years of history, in which the popular inn Lectar has been in business for over 180 years. It was first opened to the public in 1822 on the premises of a chandlery and bakery known mostly for its lect or gingerbread hearts, which is how the inn got its name and trademark.
