Most na Soci Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 71 photos

... is located on a rocky crest above the confluence of Soča and Idrijca rivers. In the past these two riverbeds, deeply carved into the rocky slopes, provided the settlement with excellent protection from intruders. Due to the nearby Doblar hydro plant, the basins of the river were entirely inundated and below the settlement the vast accumulation lake was formed, which now attracts both fishermen and visitors, who can stroll along some well-kept, panoramic and none too demanding paths.

History

Exceptional archaeological finds – more than 7000 grave sites discovered so far – rank this location among one of the most important prehistoric settlements in Europe. Rich finds date back in the period from the late Bronze Age to Roman period. Most of them originate from Iron Age, a community which was named as “Sveta Lucija Culture”. The finds are on display in many museums, i.e. in Vienna, Trieste and Tolmin. Archaeologists of the Tolmin museum are still discovering stunning finds.

Natural heritage

The principal natural adornment of Most na Soči is its lake. Although artificial, it is of the same unique colour as the mysterious Soča. To the town it bestows an atmosphere of tranquillity and softness and offers plenty of opportunities for recreation. Flat limestone layers at Pod Ključem are a feature of geological interest.
