Additional Location Information
Kobarid was immortalised in Hemingway's Farewell to Arms as a charming amicable little village. Today not much has changed but the main square is filled with lively bars and great restaurants. There are also numerous music festivals taking place in the main square over the summer months.
Kobarid is even better known as the jumping off point for exploring the magnificent Soca Valley. Triglav National Park surrounds the village and its possible to walk directly from the house to several scenic peaks. There are many adventure companies in the town offering rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, canyoning and paragliding tours. The mountain of Stol is just outside and is a popular spot for paragliders and there is a regular taxi service the jump off point. The landing spot is within walking distance of the house.
For those who prefer less extreme pursuits the Soca Valley is extremely scenic and is perfect for touring by bike or car. From the town there are a number of gentle walks to a beautiful waterfall, a restored Roman village and World War I battle sites. There is also an award winning museum dedicated to the history of World War I and the Soca Front.
Kobarid has 12 café’s, three restaurants and three pizzeria’s all within a five minute stroll of the house. There are also two larger grocery stores, three bakeries, one green grocers, a post office and two banks. And even a police station.
Hiking - Triglav National Park borders the village on two sides and there are a number of hikes, ranging from easy to difficult which can be done right from town. The Walk of Peace also runs through the village and from this trail you can walk up to Bovec or down to Tolmin. The tourist office has complete list of the hundreds of walks possible in the area.
Swimming - locals like to head to the "beach" on the Najda River which is warmed by natural hot springs with supposed healing qualities. Its 5km outside of town on the road to Italy and there is a great bar serving food and drinks. For the brave, its possible to swim in the Soca just past the Napoleon Bridge. A bit further a field, the best swimming spot on the Soca can be found down valley in the pretty village of Kanal. The River is very shallow on the banks here so it is a suitable place to take children. There is also an excellent bakery/cafe here. For proper swimming there is an aqua park in Bovec and another one in Lake Bohinj.
