Mt. Senica

Hiking Families
Easy | 2.5–3 hrs

Located on the left bank of the Soča (Isonzo), Mt. Senica did not enter the history of battles on the Isonzo Front; nevertheless, many remains of that time can still be seen there. Austro-Hungarian soldiers set up their positions of defence on this 658 metres high elevation should their defensive line on Mt. Mengore fall. Since this did not happen, these positions never played a more important role.
