I came to this region to see where my grandfather fought on the Isonzo Front in World War 1. Besides that, I knew very little of the history of the area. After dinner, my wife and I decided to walk around Kobarid. We had seen...More

All Wars are sad, but the WW 1 was in this area exceptionally senseless: two armies facing each other for 3 years, not being able to move either forward nor backward. They just tried to survive and to do as much damage to the other...More

My recommendation is – take a few more minutes and hike up to the monument. The short walk ornamented with its own "via Delarosa" its own fourteen "stations" is well worth the effort – it also makes the final vista so much more rewarding.

We've passed this interesting monument a couple of times upon our drive through Kobarid, but decided to stop this time. The road up to the church is more interesting as it's in a form of 'via crucis' with 14 stops on which you can rest...More
