EDEN 2008: The Soča Valley




Every year the mighty KLUŽE FORTRESS is the venue for STORIES OF THE SOČA: a re-creation of times past in the valley of the river Soča, from ethnological curiosities to the remains of the heritage of a cruel war. Stories of the surprising valley draw visitors to the Path of Peace, which connects the beauties of nature with memories of the First World War and the Soča (Isonzo) Front. The message of peace echoes among the Alpine peaks above the emerald river and into every corner of the TRIGLAV NATIONAL PARK.

No one who walks the Path of Peace from Log pod Mangartom in the Bovec area to Drežnica in the Kobarid area and to Mengor in the Tolmin area will forget the obligations of peace! The Stories of the Soča event takes place in spring but the valley draws visitors seeking active experiences all year round. One of the best conserved areas in Europe, it is popular with hikers, cyclists, lovers of water sports (canoeing, rafting, canyoning), anglers, hillwalkers and climbers, paragliders, skiers and others seeking an active holiday.
