Accessible by car from Tolmin, we chose the way via Livek, because all other roads were closed after a storm. We just managed to get a glimpse of the beautiful views, then we had to hide in the trenches. This museum is a chance to get an idea of what it was like to be encamped, using underground caves and corridors. It just needs a bit of reparation.

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 approache dit from Tolmin. In this case we needed to drive to Volce and ascend a 9km long curvy road up the ridge. This is not an easy hike, its a 850-900m level increase and a 9km road uphill. Prepared hikers might take the walk, follow the Kolovrat signs all the way. Enjoy!

It is a beautiful experience to see where the Yugoslav army once was. Bunkers with small tunnels, trenches and the original main guard house are definitely sights to see. easily accessible with a smooth road from Volce village!

Very easy accessible by car, 10 minutes drive from Tolmin to a height of 1,000 meters. The outdoor museum is located on the border between Italy and Slovenia. There are very nice views of Tolmin and the villages in Italy and the Julian Alps with a height of over 2,000 meters. You can walk through the World War I soldiers’ paths and the bunkers. Walking takes about 30 minutes, it is recommended to have a small lamp. There is also a board with some pictures and information about the Battle of Kolovrat. It's not dangerous; it's very suitable for children.

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 during WW1. One of the highlights of our trip.

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. We walked in the trenches made 100 year ago by Italian soldiers, discovered some of the caves in the mountainside and climbed to the mountaintop (1115 m), which is actually the border between Italy and Slovenia.
The museum and parking is free. There is a small shop offering maps, books and refreshment.

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 them. The energy expended to build them, the manpower needed to dig the hard rocky soil, the tears and fears of the men holding these lines - all in all an incredible feat of engeneering and willpower.
It is hard to imagine thr conditions the soldiers lived in, in summer and winter..in heat or cold..incredible. If you climb to the top of the mountain, the binoculars(mounted there) give you an incredible view of the surounding mountains and into Italy - Molfancone and the sea.
An idea for the caretakers - maby build a room or mount a container with some more puctures - information about the trench system and units manning them.
Interesting information for the historry buffs - Ervin Rommel fought on this hill..🤓

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 and Grado the other way. It is worth visiting the great museum in Kobarid first as it puts this site in some context.

It was quite easy to find the open air museum. We took the road from the village of Idrsko towards Livek following the signs of Pot Miru. We visited this place on a rainy day and we were the only visitors so we could discover the trenches on our own. Since the place was covered with a cloud we took some spooky pictures and unfortunately we missed the beautiful view. It is really worth visiting this place- totally doable with small kids as well. On such a rainy and cold day you can get some idea how the soldiers spent their days in the trenches. Very strange

We spent an hour or so trying to find this place with the address on here. Needless to say sat nav failed us. So after finding a more detailed in the WW1 museum in Kobrid we eventually made the climb up the mountain. The place was practically deserted when we got there so managed to walk through the trenches in complete silence. Very thought provoking to imagine what life must have been like there. We walked to the viewpoint t and were rewarded with stunning views down the valley. Definitely worth a visit.
