The traces of WWI are still visible in Bohinj. After Italy entered the war, Bohinj became an important supply hinterland for the northern part of the Isonzo Front. It was connected with the railway and extended outside the battlefield hinterland so that it was out of reach of canons.
Today, the Bohinj theme trail is a part of the Peace Trail along the remains of the Isonzo Front. Hikers can spend a few days walking the entire trail, which starts in Bohinjska Bistrica, continues to Ukanc, the Krn mountain range and the Tolminka valley.
The trail is not only surrounded by the magnificent beauty of nature, the Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park, it also entails exceptional stories about human ingenuity, persistence and the personal destinies of soldiers, captives and locals.
