Guided tour of Outdoor Museum Mengore – A guard of the Tolmin Bridgehead 

Suitable for:  hikers, bikers, families, history aficionados, organised groups

Between Tolmin and Most na Soči the ridges of Mengore and Bučenica rise above the right bank of the River Soča. What was the role of these two elevations during the World War I and what is the story the numerous remains here can tell us today?

Two paths lead up to the top of Mengore, the historical trail and the pilgrimage route, which meet at the church dedicated to the Holy Virgin’s Name. The pilgrimage church was decorated with frescoes by Tone Kralj, the painter who fought against the fascist regime in a very special way, thus enabling the people of Primorska to withdraw to an oasis of Slovenianism at least for short spells of time.
