TO SVETA GORA THROUGH TRENCHES

On a beautiful November Sunday we were taken to northern Littoral region, namely to a smaller elevation, which rises above Nova Gorica and Solkan, Sveta gora. Sveta gora is 862 meters high elevation, which offers a beautiful view on Gorica hills, Adriatic sea and the Friulian lowlands towards the Julian Alps with Triglav, across Vipava valley to Inner and Istrian hills. The top of the Sveta gora is named Skalnica (en. The Rock), the biggest landmark is God’s trail basilica of the Queen of Sveta gora, which was our goal.

Entrance to the longest trench

The visitors can reach the top with the car on asphalt road from Solkan, along with it there are the Stations of the Cross. We returned along this path, after reaching the top. One can reach the top along the pilgrimage trail from Preval or from Grgar, Zagora, and Plave. We decided to conquer the top by going through the trenches, which were created during the First World War. Along the path we were accompanied by big and small caverns, this are preserved and partly cleaned Austria-Hungarian defense positions.
