Kras after the Fires

Summer forest fires in Kras left behind a total devastation. A large part of Kras burned down both on the Slovenian and the Italian side. As the cleaning of the terrain will take a long time, and risk of fire is still severe, we ask the visitors to inform themselves about the conditions on the terrain and the accessibility before your visit to Kras. Due to danger of burned trees falling and the presence of unexploded ordinance from World War I, do not wander off the existing hiking and cycling routes. Moreover, also the animals need time to rest and find a new habitat. Therefore, please show respect and follow the instructions while visiting Kras.

Information for the Slovene part of Kras:
The Walk of Peace Visitor Centre, Monument of Peace Cerje

Information for the Italian part of Kras:
The Walk of Peace Visitor Centre, IAT Fogliano Redipuglia 

The fires also damaged the information boards and waymarks of the Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic. Therefore, we ask you to request GPXs of the stages via the web page and follow those indications, until the paths will be marked again.
