Experience Slovenia and Italy on the Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic a century after the Isonzo Front. The Walk of Peace is connected by the Soča River and the historic heritage of European importance. The local co-creators of tourism have, within the framework of the European project T-Lab under the auspices of SPIRIT Slovenia, connected to create a cross-border network. The heritage of the First World War and its wrathful battles served as a starting point to create new tourist programs.
