This hidden gem has still very narrow road from Tolmin – Zatolmin and up to the valley. When you reach the sign for even narrower path, park your car if it is not a jeep. Walk slowly up to the left and then turn right....More

to visit the WW I memorial trail is a must in the area, especially this year. The nature surrounding the historic sites is overwhelming, though to imagine the fights that took place in the three years, day in, day out must have been scary

Great peaceful church that feels more like a memorial than a church which I enjoyed. Great walk up from the carpark is much more rewarding than attempting to drive the last 20min. Great view and a great start to the valley hike. Take care in...More

A beautiful little church in the hills - built by the Austro - Hungarian forces in the war (1914-18). The church includes the names of the fallen - not the large range of nationalities and religions. To get there you either have a long hike...More
