Easy | 2.5 hrs

A guided tour through the Park of Peace links the remains of WW1, including the Monument of Peace, the Pečinka Cave and the Throne of Boroević, into a rich historical narrative. From the 25-meter-high memorial on Cerje at the edge of the Kras Plateau, breath-taking views open from the sea to the Alps. The experience includes a welcome drink, a film about WW1, an interactive exhibition on the Isonzo Front, The Dance of Life and Death, a masterpiece by painter R. Španzel, and other contents from Slovenian history. 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.
