    The lesson in European history continues. Following the border between Slovenia and Italy, you will reach the two-part city of Gorizia / Nova Gorica, your penultimate stage location. World War I scenes are once again omnipresent. Museums and places of remembrance can be found at the peaks of Kolovrat and Sabotin, among others. In between there are wonderful lonely panoramic routes and a few beautiful trails.

    After a short warm-up, your day's stage begins with an ascent of almost 1,000 meters in altitude to the border ridge on the Kolovrat. There it is worth visiting the Italian defenses and positions from the Grande Guerra. A cross-border museum is well worth a visit. In many places you can cross back and forth between the Italian and Slovenian sides. You have a wonderful view of the Julian Alps in the north and the hills of Friuli, which merge into a wide plain before your gaze meets the Adriatic in the south.

    From Kolovrat to Gorizia's local mountain, Monte Sabotino, a ridge road connects small, remote hamlets on both sides of the national border. Sometimes you look into the Sočatal, sometimes into Friuli. Large parts of the route follow former military roads. A mix of narrow mountain roads, farm roads and a few beautiful single trails, some of which lead through the dilapidated and overgrown positions, awaits you over about 40 kilometers. Huts and supply options are very rare on Kammweg. Use every opportunity to fill up with water at the fountain and stock up on a few snacks before you leave Kobarid.

    At Sabotin / Monte Sabotino you have the opportunity to visit another military museum. Here, too, the national border runs precisely through the historical facilities. You have the best view of Nova Gorica / Gorizia from the summit of Sabotin, which you can in turn reach from both sides. The national border runs along the old railway line that divides the city. The north-eastern part of the city belongs to Slovenia, the southern part to Italy. A nice trail at the end of the day leads you to the Italian part of the city, where street cafes, gelaterias and nice restaurants with typical Italian charm await you.
