Pretty Tolmin enjoys one of the most striking locations in Slovenia. The small town sits just above the confluence of the Soča and Tolminka rivers, not far from the borders with Italy and Austria. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, understandably popular with walkers. Not far outside the town, the dramatic Tolmin gorges mark the lower entrance of the Triglav National Park and the steep mountains make an impressive backdrop for this charming town. Your Tolmin hostel makes a great base if you want to enjoy adventurous outdoor pursuits; the Soča Valley is particularly well known for white water rafting and kayaking.
During the World War I, the breach of the Soča Front was launched from Tolmin, where allied soldiers were based. A must see destination is the Javorca church perched at the top of the Tolminka Valley; it was built by Austrian-Hungarian soldiers as a memorial to their fallen comrades. The museum in Tolmin includes exhibitions on these events as well as displays on the history and culture of the region more generally.
At Most na Soči, an archaeological museum displays the remains of Hallstatt and Roman era settlements including some well preserved Hallstatt houses and items excavated from a burial of some seven thousand ancient graves dating from thirteen hundred BC and the fifth century.
