Kobarid Museum, Slovenia


In World War One, the Italian Front ran through the Soča Valley and Kobarid's museum gives over much of its space to weaponry and other exhibits from that conflict. The many black and white photos serve to remind visitors of how many young lives were sacrificed between 1914 and 1918. Even if you don't make it into the museum, an artillery gun near the town centre serves a grim symbol of the turbulent history of these historic borderlands.
