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

For those who want to experience the circumstances of the soldiers 100 years ago. Small but nice, and well preserved.

At the car park there is no sign to the open-air museum so it took us quite some time to find it. There is a small hut next to the road and beside it (on the left) a 100-metre-long path leads to the wood. Don't...More

Once you find this station on the Walk of Peace, which preserves trenches and battlements from a bloody WWI locale (the setting of Hemingway's A FAREWELL TO ARMS), you will find the record of bloodshed hard to reconcile with the breathtaking beauty of the natural...More
