Almost each stone in the Mt. Sabotin Park of Peace could tell a story about the Austro-Hungarian and Italian soldiers, fortifying their battle positions. During World War I the mountain was drilled from all sides and criss-crossed by galleries, trenches and caves. Due to its strategic position over the River Soča (Isonzo) it was first an important Austro-Hungarian bridgehead on the right bank, but in the Sixth Isonzo Battle in August 1916 it was conquered, together with Gorizia/Gorica, by the Italian Army. The ascent up Mt. Sabotin is rewarded by a panoramic view from the Vipava Valley and the Brda Hills, to the Kras, the Friuli Lowland and the Julian Alps. Come and visit the outdoor museum, the Museum Collection Sabotin, the Walk of Peace Visitor Centre and the snack-bar offering the tasty local jota stew and other delicacies.
