RADATOVIĆI

A pictoresque village in the western part of the Park on the slopes of Žumberačka gora with a splendid view of Velika and Mala Kapela, Klek and parts of Bela Krajina and Sveta Gera. Radatovići or Sveta Nedjelja is one of the oldest if not the oldest parish on Žuberak. The parish of Christ's Resurrection was mentioned back in 1623.


The locals mostly live of agriculture and domestic food production. In Badovinci, on the road to Radatovići, is St Nicholas' Greek Catholic Church. Next to it there is a monument to glorious Uskok families with their family coats-of-arms.
In the building of former elementary school there is a small ethnographic collection and a fresco painted by Zlatko Prica and Nikola Reiser. It is painted in 1943 during The Second World War and presents anti-war topic. It is rare, but it cannot be seen at the moment due to excavations.
