Kobarid (Caporetto)

© noheadimg

During WWI the region around the Soca Valley was the site of the Soca Front, where fighting claimed an estimated 1 million lives. In 1917 the combined forces of Austrian, German, Hungarian and Slovenian armies met at the town of Kobarid (Caporetto in Italian), where they defeated the Italian army. This victory was the greatest breakthrough of WWI.

Nowadays it's a peaceful, Mediterranean-style place, where visitors flock to relive these events at the award-winning, anti-war Kobarid Museum.

There are several hotels and restaurants in Kobarid. The town is 75 km northwest of Ljubljana. Kobarid has good bus connections with the capital.
