THE ZAPRIKRAJ OUTDOOR MUSEUM (virtual excursion) is located at the first Italian defense line. A system of stone and concrete made trenches with crenels was built, caverns were drilled and artillery positions were set at the mountain saddle between Kal (1,760 m) and Krasji vrh (1,768 m). This line was intended to repel Austro-Hungarian army attacks, which were directed towards Drežnica and Kobarid. The very first battle was on October 24th 1917 when Italians repelled the attack of Austro-Hungarian mountain brigade, and then left their positions because the area of Kobarid behind them had already been captured.
