Outdoor Museum Zaprikraj, Slovenia

The outdoor museum Zaprikraj lies by the path between the alps Zaprikraj and Predolina above Drežnica. It represents the well fortified Italian first line of defence in the Krn range which blocked the passage along the valley between Mt. Krasji vrh and Mt. Vršič. The heaviest battles between the two adversary armies in the Krn range were fought in the autumn of 1915.
The museum's circular path runs through the trenches, caves, gun- and mortar positions, past the remains of cabins, a pillbox and the restored memorial plaque dedicated to the killed Italian lieutenant.
Visit to the museum Zaprikraj is a whole-day tour which, in addition to revealing the history of the First World War, offers many pleasures of hiking in the unspoiled nature, where the alps are still active.
