Soča, do tell: 100 years of First World War along the Walk of Peace
Along the Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic Sea A Century After the Isonzo Front
Have you ever embraced the Alps and the Adriatic with a single view? Have you ever strolled along the emerald Soča River ?
This is where the Great War cut fiercely into serenity a century ago.
Today, the historic heritage of Isonzo front (Italian front) of European importance is linked by the Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic Sea. It runs across green and diverse landscape – past picturesque towns, out-of-the-way villages and open fireplaces where still smells of good food.
Slovenian and Italian tourism experience providers have on the occasion of the 100th anniversary come together in cross-border network and created new ideas for your holiday.
Welcome to the Walk of Peace!
Feel the boundless experiences and freedom, spread your wings among the vistas of the mountains and the sea, let yourself be pampered by the hospitality of the locals. *The T-lab project connects countries and people. The mission of all partners in the project is the promotion of innovation in tourism in the cross-border region that connects Slovenia and Italy. The project is co-financed within the scope of the Italy-Slovenia Cross-border Cooperation Programme 2007–2013 from the funds of the European Regional Development Fund and national funds.
A century ago, the Great War fiercely cut into serenity of the emerald Soča River. Tips for a short break and exploration prepared for you by individual providers.
