The Vršič area is known for its natural beauty and history, especially the Russian Chapel and the High Mountain Road, most of which was the work of prisoners of the Russian Tsarist army. The wider Vršič area, including Kranjska Gora and Upper Trenta, harbours a rich and varied World War I heritage, which was explored during the archaeological research project “Between War and Peace – The Archaeology of Vršič as a World War I Hinterland and a Crossroads of Freedom, Captivity, Cultures, Peoples and Religions“, co-funded by the Slovenian Public Agency for Research and the Municipality of Kranjska Gora.
We would like to invite you to the opening of the museum exhibition entitled Between War and Peace, which will present the military heritage of Vršič and its surroundings. The exhibition will open on Friday, 9 June at 5 pm in the Kranjska Gora Museum. The exhibition will be guided by the author, archaeologist Dr Uroš Košir.
The exhibition will be on display until 27 August 2023.
