WW1 OUTDOOR MUSEUM RAVELNIK - IN THE SHELTER OF MOUNTAINS

A genuine display of the surviving machine gun emplacements, caves, pillboxes, cabins, trenches, etc., now interlaced with lush nature, will put us in direct contact with the memory that is inherent to this landscape.

Every Friday

WW1 OUTDOOR MUSEUM KOLOVRAT - A VIEW OVER THE FRONT

The Kolovrat ridge rises above the Soča Valley and offers exceptional views over the emerald river, the Julian Alps, Venezia-Giulia, the Friuli lowland and the Adriatic Sea.

Today, we can enjoy the peace of unspoiled nature here, while during World War I the Kolovrat had to witness the destructive Isonzo Front. In the outdoor museum we are going to explore the onetime Italian line of defence with the preserved command posts, shooting positions, a network of trenches and caves with the impressive spiral stairs in one of them. This formerly crucial line of division is nowadays a symbol of the unifying power of remembrance, since we shall walk on both territories, the Italian and the Slovenian, while discovering the history of WW1.

Every Friday at 9:30 in July and August
Price: 17,00 €/person.
Duration of the guided tour: 90 min.
Assembly point: parking area on the Kolovrat, at the info point
