The Museum of the Great War (Museo della Grande Guerra) in Gorizia/Gorica is housed in the basement of the medieval palace on the castle hill (Borgo Castello). Presented are events in Gorizia and on the surrounding hills during World War I. On display are various objects, historical valuables, Austro-Hungarian and Italian uniforms, models of the city and the two surrounding elevations, Calvario/Kalvarija and Sabotin, a room dedicated to General Armando Diaz, and a life-size trench where the deafening sound of shells offers to visitors a quick experience of what it was to be a soldier on the front.
