The municipality of Radobica, which belongs to the district of Prievidza, was mentioned in 1324 for the first time in a written document. Today, about 530 people live in Radobica which is famous for its high recreational potential. This is due to the fact, that the region around Radobica is very calm and offers a lot of green and natural landscape, what favours the touristic sector. But within the last centuries, mostly craftsmen and farmers settled in Radobica. Around 1960, Radobica had most inhabitants so far with approximately 1000 people living there. That was possible with a furniture industry being located in Vel'ké Uherce, a neighboring village. Because this was the only opportunity to work and also due to little wages, many people left Radobica and migrated for example to the Czech Republic or to Austria.
In contrast to Vel'ké Pole and Pìla, Radobica has never been a German municipality. However, a minority of German settlers belonged to the inhabitants of Radobica. At present, 91.51% are of Slovak nationality and 8.49% belong to other nationalities.
