This place is quite difficult to find, if you are travelling from Bovec, look for the sign on the right sitting behind some trees. The path takes you through the forest for a 200m and opens in to the site. I love exploring, the caves...More

There was a horrendous battle fought here in World War I To no purpose other than to slaughter too many young men. We found the museum very interesting. I went with 4 guys on a hot July morning and all the guys loved it.

This open air museum is on the road from Bovec to Kluže on the right side, a bit hard to find, but worth it. 250m from the road there is a trench complex, complete with descriptions of individual items. There are shooting ports, barbed wire...More

We visited this place on a rainy day, it was fun to run along the path and find shelter when it rained a bit. It helped us to imagine how it could be during the world war. Mainly the boys found it interesting.

This museum is great! Could do with a little more information but being able to walk through the trenches, tunnels and look out points really brings WW1 to life as you imagine how difficult it was to fight in the mountains. It is a little...More

Nice and easy walk through the WWI history. The location showed both on Google and TripAdvisor are wrong. Here the coordinate of the Parking lot from where you start the walk. 46* 20' 27.60" N - 13* 34'13.44"

This museum is not easy to find-- but well worth it if you are at all interested in WWI or read Hemingway's "Farewell to Arms." Even though our travel guide described exactly where to find it, we were still doubtful that we were in the...More

I found it fascinating to be able to walk in the tunnels, caves and trenches built into this hill and imagine life for soldiers stationed here. While this wasn't a landmark I was aware of before my visit, I'm glad it was preserved. It's certainly...More
