What people say

"For such a small town, Kobarid has a lot history. The area, which hugs the west bank of the Soča River, has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The Romans, Slavic tribes, the Venetians, the Kingdom of Italy, and the Austrians followed. But things really got interesting throughout the world wars. During World War I, the Battles of the Isonzo were fought here. Kobarid was almost completely destroyed, and it became part of Italy at the end of the war. In the years that followed, the Italian Fascists violently took control. Kobarid was liberated by the Yugoslav Partisans, taken over by the German Reich, and freed by the Yugoslav People's Army. The town, as least what was left of it, was handed to Yugoslavia at the end of World War II. Kobarid is now full of historic sites. The Kobarid Historic Trail, the Kobarid Museum, the Kozjak waterfall, Napoleon's Bridge, the Tonovcov grad archaeological site, and the unique Cheese Museum now lure people to the area. Excellent restaurants make them stay."
