We took a hiking trip around Kobarid and this was one of the destinations. The walk in itself was not difficult, but the groud IS rocky and a good pair of shoes is esential. The remains of the buildings are interesting, there is also aditional information provided on some boards, leting you know more about the history of the place.
I'd recomend the path from St.Anton, as the other route is rather more difficult(we descendet via it..).
All in all,a great trip, with a nice view of the surrounding.

These ruins were truelly a surprise to me. Leaving Kobarid we crossed Napoleon's bridge and followed the Soča trail. Passed another bridge and started to follow the path upwards. A nice walk. You don't need to return on the same path - we reached the Kobarid sacutary from this ruins.

The location is amazing: it is surrounded by vertical high cliffs from 3 sides and was easily defendable to the 4th side. You can actually still see the waterproof lining of one water reservoir, and the outlines of 3 churches and 2 residential buildings dating back to 4th, 5th and 6th century. The written explanations are exceptionally informative, and we learned a lot about live at the borders of Roman Empire here.
Artifacts from late Stone Age all the way to Roman Empire were found at this site, many of them imports from places far away which may industry cate the the place was prosperous and wealthy enough to trade with others.

You get a good glimpse on how it was to live in this part of the world when the Roman Empire was on a decline and people used to civilization back then had to survive and go on with their way of living. Basically they had to leave lower valley areas and move higher in order to protect themselves from the invaders. You can see church, house remains. The water reservoir is well presented and memorable.

There are good explanations on 4 languages and
