The outdoor museum Zaprikraj (1,259 m) is located within the Triglav National Park area and in the vicinity of still living mountain pastures. In addition to the history of World War I it also offers many trekking pleasures in the beautiful nature. In Drežnica, you will visit the outstanding storyteller of todayʼs and past stories, Mirko Kurinčič, and his collection Botognice.
