Sabotin Peace Park
Mount Sabotin rises 609 metres on the junction between the Goriška Region, the Soča Valley and the hills of Goriška Brda. Its long ridge serves as border Slovenian-Italian border. But in the World War I it was the backdrop of the infamous Battles of the Isonzo where soldiers of 22 nationalities shed their blood. Today, luscious vegetation hides the scars left by bullets and grenades. The entire hillside is perforated with a vast network of caverns and trenches, creating a one-of-a-kind open-air museum. You can visit it and pay your tribute accompanied by tour guides. The former guardhouse houses the museum collection Sabotin in World War I, and also offers tours under professional guidance.
As cross-border peace park and part of the Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic, Sabotin serves as great reminder of the absurdity of war and promotes the coexistence of nations.
Mt. Sabotin is very popular hiking and cycling destination with breathtaking view all around.
