Bovec Off The Beaten Path: 1 reviews and 4 photos
Letišèe is the small grass airfield set on the south side of Bovec. It was originally built by Italian forces when the Soèa watershed was under Italian occupation between the two wars. The Yugoslav air force took over after 1947. Today, the grass fields are a popular landing site for paragliders. At the time I was here the whole ground was taken over by an international group of model sailplane enthusiasts. Rising above on the north side, high above Bovec is Rombon where heavy fighting took place in 1915-16.
