Roblekov dom (Roblek’s home) is a mountain cottage.
It was named after Hugo Roblek, who was born in 1871 and died in 1920 when the National House in Trieste was burned. It is also worth mentioning that Roblekov dom was burned down by the Partisans, in 1943.
Three years later, a new complex was built, the opening of which was on the 15th of September,.1946. The new cottage was the work of the climbers association of Radovljica (a city in Carniola part of Slovenia). Roblekov dom is located at 1657 meters above sea level. A pleasant ambiance in the embrace of the mountain world is enriched with culinary offer and hospitality of the cottage caretakers.
In front of the Roblekov dom there is a terrace with a spectacular view. In the distance, the Lake Bled shines. If you continue the hike, you reach a peak of 2060 meters high mountain Begunjščica. In the gallery, in a photo with a signpost, you can see the mountain Stol (Hochstuhl), and the Vrtača (Wertatscha).
