The Radenci Tourist Association was founded on March 24th 1956. The initiator and also the first chairperson of the Office was Mr. Hugo Kemer, who at the time was the manager of Slatina Radenci. The Office was founded with the intention of helping Slatina Radenci develop from a well established health resort to a town even more attractive for the locals and tourists. Features of the tourist town Radenci include a health resort and mineral water; however, one should not overlook a particularly lovely squirrel "Mukica", who touches everyone strolling in the park with its playful and homely attitude. It was these features that made us chose "Mukica" as the symbol of our tourist office.
The Radenci Tourist Office has been and will also in the future be in charge of developing tourist infrastructure in Radenci and its vicinity, restoration and preservation of cultural monuments, and managing and maintenance of individual public areas. The Office will focus a large part of its future activities into further development of tourism in the Radenci municipality and into including as many members of the community and other actors as possible in tourist activities, which is also one of the goals of the tourist development strategy in Slovenia (Wellness programme).
