Art nouveau wooden building is far more than a simple old church. It is hidden when you approach and it is really a surprise when you come to the last twist of very primary road. It is better to walk up from the main part of road in the valley (it is sometimes closed as a part of national park).... More

The street to the parking lot is challenging but you should view this place. The walk from the parking lot to the church is 20min up (not easy). Drive to the Tolmin Tourist Info first and get the key for the church first (2€). The church is not open by default and the interior is definitely worth seeing it.

An impressive wooden structure church which surprises with its level of interior decoration resembling sheets of book pages with written names of soldiers fallen in WWI. Located on a bank, overlooking the narrow valley offers great spot for admiring natural and cultural beauties of the Soča Valley.

If you are in the area, please visit this church. The church is at the end of a 7-km-long forest road. Don't feel lost but keep driving very cautiously as the road is only of a car's width. Of course there are places where you can go past a car coming from the opposite direction. At the end of the... More

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 the road up to the capital of driving as the road is narrow and gravel.

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 - or an interesting drive on a not tarmacked road for 7km - Dont be... More

Very cute small church. This was built during first world war for soldiers to find peace. Road to get there is very narrow but there are not a lot of traffic on that road. I tried to walk there, but it was too much on a sunny +35C day. It´s about 10 km from center of Tolmin. So, couple of... More

The church is wonderful and worth to visit when you are in a Soča river valley. You can reach from Tolmin by car (about 7 km) or on foot (2 hours one direction). The church was built as a monument for soldiers who had died in WWI (1914-1918). One of MUST if you come to Tolmin !!
