Monument of Peace Cerje ‒ Treasury of History and Art

Hiking Biking Families Researchers
Easy | 1.5 hrs

The Cerje peak proudly rises at the edge of the Kras Plateau, offering glorious views over the Adriatic Sea, the Friulian Plain, the Julian Alps and the Vipava Valley. Here stands a 25-metre-high Monument of Peace, which takes the visitor through Slovenia’s history, from the Freising Manuscripts to the Slovene independence. It houses several museum collections, including one about World War I, which had a major impact on the Kras. The Isonzo Front that ran from the highest peaks of the Julian Alps, across the Kras, and towards the sea is presented in the grand canvas by Rudi Španzel, The Dance of Life and Death. The local bistro invites you to taste local specialities and enjoy a cup of coffee, as well as the best view over the surrounding panorama area. The Monument of Peace is an excellent starting point for exploring the remains of World War I in this area.
