The Soča Valley and its varied and peaceful stories is a destination that includes intangible heritage forged into original tourist experiences – customs and traditions, historical awareness, creativity – and was thus awarded the EDEN Destination title in 2008. Its stories are brought to life at special events that take place at Kluže Fortress, which is also a part of the Path of Peace. These beauties of nature and local traditions are linked to the memories of World War I and the Isonzo (Soča) Front. This destination, which is one of the best preserved areas in Europe, attracts seekers of active holidays: hikers, bikers, lovers of water sports (kayaking, rafting, canyoning), anglers, mountain climbers, and sports climbers, sky divers, skiers, and other lovers of outdoor activities.

I can't really say, who grew up with whom. Slovenian Orienteering with Cerkno Cup or vice versa. I only know I would not have grown up in one without the other. Andraž Hribar, Slovenia
