The First World War Collection in Opatje selo presents the highlights from the lives of soldiers during the war and a selection of original items that were used on the Isonzo Front by both armies. The reconstruction of a military barrack from World War I is very interesting, because it clearly presents army life on the front. The collection is also constantly complemented with original photos from the times of battles on the Isonzo Front.
