At the picturesque confluence of two rivers, Tolmin offers quick access to a range of exciting outdoor activities.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Soča Valley and Virje Waterfall. Anthony's Shaft Mining Museum and Tolmin Castle on Kozlov Rob are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Tolmin: Bovec (Boka Waterfall, Parasailing & Paragliding, &more), Soča (Source of the Soča River & Church of St. Joseph) and Idrija (Idrija War Museum, Gewerkenegg Castle, &more). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Tolmin Museum, appreciate the history behind Franja Partisan Hospital, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St John the Baptist, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Memorial Church of the Holy Spirit.
