The view from Kolovrat is perhaps the finest of the entire trail: not only does it offer a breathtaking view of the Julian Alps, it also offers a panoramic view towards the Adriatic and of the route that will lead us to the sea in the next stages.
The stage follows a section of the famous "Poti miru" (path of peace).
During the First World War, there was fierce fighting between Italian and Austro-Hungarian troops on Monte Kolovrat.
The "open air" museum here is of great importance, as are all the fortifications and caverns along the entire stage route, up to Tribil di Sopra.
Here we’ll walk in the footsteps of a young German lieutenant named Rommel (the same General Rommel well-known from the Second World War battles in North Africa).
The area is also interesting for its nature, flora and fauna.
The rural villages along the route to Tribil di Sopra are of significant historical interest.
The ridge of Kolovrat is a transitory area between the Upper SočaRegion in Slovenia and the Veneto Region in Italy. The outdoor museumis located on the Kolovrat ridge with exceptionally favourable positionfor good panoramic views. In the time of the First World War theItalian army built here an extensive system of its third line ofdefence, called “linea d’armata”.
Numerous country festivals are held during the summer, almost always associated with the anniversary of the patron saint.
The bonfires (Kries) of San Giovanni night are of cultural and historical interest, as is the historical re-enactment of a First World War battle.
In a typical restaurant in Tribil di Sopra, you can savour the ancient traditional dishes of the Natisone Valleys and there is also accommodation thanks to the many hotels or hostels available in the area.
