Where Radetzky began his march ...
What is so special about Tržič you may ask?
Between his battles with Napoleon the famous general Josef Radetzky – whose march is performed by the Vienna Philharmonic every New Year's Day with the crème della crème of Austrian society in attendance beating its rhythm with their hands – took time to marry and, in this very town, purchased a mansion for 60,000 Gulden from his stingy mother-in-law.
Why? He simply liked the place! He was a man of excellent taste, take his word for it.
