The villages below Mt. Stol were the scene of many stories about bravery, love, war, loss and hope during the First World War. One of the stories left its mark in the form of a scratch on a young partisan’s helmet, and the other has been engraved in an inactive wrist watch.

Anže Mrak owns a private museum collection of items from the First World War, many of them from the famous Isonzo Front (Ernest Hemingway’s ‘A Farewell to Arms’ is partly set in the events along this Front), which tell many stories. The military museum is open upon prior arrangement.

Life in the villages below Mt. Stol was once inseparably linked with the land on which people depended. Life took place in simple farmhouses, on fertile fields, orchards, stables, and, in summer, high in the mountains to where part of the family moved in order to take care of their cattle.

If you would like to see the items, accessories and tools that made people’s lives easier on a daily basis, visit the Museum of the Past in the village of Zabreznica. Marjan Nadižar, the owner of the museum, will be more than happy to show you around. The museum is open upon prior arrangement.
