Exclusive guidance through a half-day program for smaller groups along The Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic.
The peace that will embrace you in the Soča Valley has not always been so natural in these places. You will learn that the course of history and the course of the Soča river, which ranks among the most beautiful Alpine rivers worldwide, are turbulent and unpredictable. You will be enchanted by the beauty of nature in which, however, it is impossible not to see the heritage of the war which affected the people and the land. Where once the Great War raged, we strive to slow down the pace of time and invite visitors to relaxation or reflection — a hundred years after the Isonzo Front, one of the most extensive warfare in high mountains.
An experienced local guide will first take you to the famous Kobarid Museum where the events on the Isonzo Front during the Great War are presented in a unique way — through the stories of soldiers of different nations and confessions. After that the guide will accompany you to the Kolovrat outdoor museum situated on a panoramic ridge spanning all the distance from Kobarid to the Brda Hills offering unique views of the Julian Alps and the emerald green Soča river on one side and of Veneto, the Friuli Lowland and the Adriatic Sea on the other side. Here ran the Italian line of defence whose command posts, shooting positions, a system of trenches and caves have been preserved until today. A special feature of this museum also lies in the fact that its area extends to two countries: Slovenia and Italy. At some point on the way through the Kolovrat outdoor museum you will come across a soldier of the time of the Isonzo Front whose account will take you back into history, into the time of a hundred years ago.
This experience will be followed by a shepherd’s snack in the cheese-making museum “Od Planine do Planike” (From the Mountain Pasture to the Planika Dairy) in Kobarid and a tour through this interesting museum which in addition to the life and work on a mountain pasture also shows the tradition of making the Tolminc cheese, a local trademark with protected origin.
