Mt. Krasji vrh

Hiking Families Researchers
Medium/Demanding | 6–7 hrs

The 1,768 metres high mountain was abandoned by Austro-Hungarian soldiers without a single fight at the very beginning of the war between Italy and Austria-Hungary. Italian soldiers occupied the mountain and set up numerous gun positions on it, thus being able to control the battlefields on both Mt. Kal and Mt. Javoršček. Krasji vrh remained in the Italian hands until the breakthrough of the front in 1917.
