Peč / Tromeja / Monte Forno / Dreiländereck / Ofen is a 1,508 m high peak, located at the triple border between Slovenia, Italy and Austria. The top offers a spectacular view of the Julian Alps, the Gailtal Alps, the Gurktal Alps, the High and Low Tauern and the western part of the Karavanke mountains.
Peč, or Tromeja, is located at the crossroads of three nations and four languages – Slovenian, Friulian, Italian and German. This is why it has been included in the international chain of monuments dedicated to peace.
You will notice that the memorials at the top are written in all three languages. Every year a social event brings together representatives of all three nations.
