Geocache Description:


The cache is hidden in the Soca (Isonzo) valley near Bovec. You can find it on the Mount Ravelnik at a fortified position of the Austro-Hungarian defence. This cache is dedicated to memories of all the soldiers and to my grandfather who fought in the Isonzo Front.

This area has a rich history from the WWI. Here you can see fortified positions, some caverns and trenches. During the First World War the Bovec Basin was cut through by the Austro-Hungarian line of defence. The ninety kilometres section of the front running along the Soca (Isonzo) region from Mt. Rombon to the Adriatic was called Isonzo Front. The warfare lasted for twenty-nine months in this area and twelve offensives took place during this time.

The cache can be found in a cavern, under some stones. You need for the search a torch, the cave is quite big and has more corridors. The rampart is in the woods, but on the top of the hill near the cavern you can find clear view to the sky.

You can park your car here: N46° 20,471’ E013° 34,237’
The cache is an 18 cm round shape box, contains a map CD, key holder, some reflection stickers among others.

Let’s go for adventure!
