This outdoor museum is amazing. A nice drive up the mountain from Kobarid. The trenches, which were part of the Italian defensive lines, are wonderfully maintained. Stunning vistas from the top of the mountain. Gives you a idea of what it must have been like...More

We visited and liked WWI museums in Gorizia and Kobarid, but the open air museum in Kolovrat is special and gave us an unforgettable experience. It is situated between Kobarid and Tolmin. The road is narrow and winding, but it is well worth the trip....More

The Kolovrat trenches are a part of the Italian defence lines above Tolmin at a hight of 1114m. The views you get from here are breathtaking and as you walk the trenches you can not stop to think about the men building them and defending...More

Whilst this is only a few kilometres from Kobarid it does seem to take a while to get there! Once there it is really interesting with restored WW1 trenches. The views are amazing looking across the mountains of Slovenia one way and across to Trieste...More

The outdoor museum is a fascinating look at the trenches and infrastructure used during WWI on the Soča front. It combines history with hiking and beautiful views. A little something for everyone.

Kolovrat is definitely worth visiting. It takes a relaxed 1-1.5 hours to walk around the WWI trenches the Italian army built on the ridge over the Soca valley. You can observe well renovated trenches, caverns here. The view is stunning from the mountain top. We...More

Outdoor museum on Kolovrat Mountain is worth visiting because of really panoramic view on the Soča Valley. Very interesting remains from IWW could be seen there (trenches, caves and fortified positions). You can go by car up.

The place is accesible all the time, but the person minding it is there from 10-18h. You can drive to the place with the car, the trenches alone are then easily reachable by foot.
