The Walk of Peace hiking tour is full of adventure, memories, and a journey through the incredible history of World War I. What this illuminating trail teaches us is that what once divided us, now unites us. Walking along the former frontline, it is impossible not to be overcome with a gratitude for peace and the immense beauty of nature.
A century after World War I, the Walk of Peace honours the history, heritage and memory with a long-distance hiking trail running from the Julian Alps to the Adriatic.
The Isonzo Front, one of the most extensive battlefields in the high mountains, where Austro-Hungarian troops fought against the Italians, left behind numerous military cemeteries, trenches, caves, chapels and other memorabilia. The turbulent history of the area, which left a deep mark on both the land and its people, makes this hiking tour especially interesting.
Spreading the message of peace among nations, the Walk of Peace is the only long-distance cross-border trail connecting the fronts of two countries – Slovenia and Italy. The trail crosses the emerald Soča Valley in the Triglav National Park, the wine-growing region of Brda and the mystical land of Kras before reaching the delightful Adriatic coast. The diversity of the landscape is reflected in delicious local cuisine, a constant companion on the way. Walking along mountain peaks, through narrow gorges, karst caves and vineyards, cultural heritage is complemented by incredible natural sites and views.
The cultural trail is uniformly marked and suitable for trekking throughout most of the year. It includes various alternate routes and additional loops for the most eager hikers.
In 2016, the Walk of Peace was put on UNESCO’s tentative list of world heritage sites and in 2020 it was chosen for the best cross-border Interreg project in Europe.
