Travel: Italian ossuary, Kobarid, Slovenia

The Italian ossuary is a cemetery for fallen Italians in the first world war. It was finished in 1938 and opened by Benito Musolini. By the road up to the ossuary from the center of the town Kobarid are stations of the Cross’s path with Italian inscriptions. Along with the historical monument also the view from the top of the hill is quite stunning. I don’t think knowing the surroundings are spectacular take away from the awe-factor. A load of history accompanied with amazing views, including the Soča river trailing through the valley.

The Italian ossuary is a relatively new inhabitant on the hill as the church of St. Anthony has recited the hill since 1669.
