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.
From the local road Miren–Opatje selo turn left onto a side road at the indication sign for Cerje and drive for around 2 kilometres up a tarmac road. At a larger crossroad with the indication sign for Cerje, turn left and continue onwards to the lower parking area, located just at the beginning of the Promenade of Gratitude. From there you can reach the Monument of Peace on foot or you can drive all the way to the top where there is another larger parking area just next to the Monument of Peace.
