Mt. Cvetje

Easy | 3.5 hrs

From the pass of Poljance, a groomed footpath leads to Mt. Cvetje. Cvetje consists of two hills, Mt. Mrzli vrh (590 m) and Mt. Selski vrh (587 m). Together with two other hills, Mengore and Bučenica, it formed the Austro-Hungarian defence on the right bank of the Soča (Isonzo). Thus an important railway and road connection with the inland was blocked. This area is known as the Tolmin bridgehead. Especially in the initial offensives, the Italian troops besieged these hills heavily. Nowadays, several hiking trails lead past memorials, fortified positions, trenches and caves. It is possible to descend from Selski vrh to the village of Sela pri Volčah.
