Mountains around us with description of the tours
KrnOur sacred mountain that rises above the clear river Soča. It is the highest summit in Krn mountain ridge. Its height on the top from the viewing platform offers us a great view. On a clear day in the south the Adriatic Sea can be seen, to the north the Mountain Triglav, and at the foot of the mountain on the north side the Krn lake can also be seen. Krn lake is the largest alpine lake in the country. On the south side just below the summit stands the Gomilšček schelter. At the foot of the mountain stands a hut Kuhinja, where mountaineers after a grueling tour can refresh themselves.
It is a plateau next to mountain Krn. It has very gently slopped summit. It is the most famous from the battles of the 1st World War. The worst battles were held on Batognica on 21st July 1915, when the Italians pushed Austro-Hungarians to the eastern third of the plateau. The Italians occupied the western and central part of the plateau Batognica and Austro-Hungarian army still held the eastern part. Armies were only 85 meters away from each other. Both armies were heavily fortified. They both dug an extensive systems of caverns and tunnels in which the soldiers spent two more years. The battle line during this time did not move at all, so the Italians dug tunnels under Austrian positions and placed the explosive beneath them. The Austro-Hungarians also wanted to surprise Italians in the same way. They accidentally discovered the Italians tunnel and carefully removed the entire explosive from it. The explosive was then placed under Italian positions and detonated. The explosion crater of detonated 4100 kg of nitroglycerine is still clearly visible today.
