|Choppy upper reaches of the Isonzo|
The Julian Alps during the 20th century remained where they are, obviously. However, they did not remain in the same country - at different times in that century they were in the Austrian-Hungarian empire, Italy, Yugoslavia and finally Slovenia. This means that many places have more than one name - in the first world war the small town of Kobarid was more well known as Caporetto. And the river Soca that flows through the long valley was the Isonzo. Today we did a short easy walk of about nine kilometres, known as the Kobarid historical trail that starts from a museum in Kobarid, dedicated to the local events of that terrible war.
