Javorca, a place of European memory.

High above the riverbed of the Tolminka River you can find a wooden shrine – the Memorial Church of the Holy Spirit in Javorca. It is dedicated to the fallen Austro-Hungarian defenders of the Tolmin battlefield on the Isonzo front (1915–1917).

Whole schedule


Book your seat on the Shuttle Bus

In summer the road to Javorca is completely closed to all motor vehicles, therefore an organized Shuttle bus runs into the Tolminka valley, from the Tolmin bus station to the parking lot below Javorca.

Get yourself a free seat.



At the traffic-light intersection in the
centre of Tolmin, start following the signs for Javorca.

Just behind the village of Zatolmin, you arrive to a 7-km-long narrow gravel road (approx. 20 min drive) with numerous passing places which is only appropriate for personal vehicles.

When you reach the parking lot under Javorca, continue on foot for approximately 15-20 min along the concrete road until you reach the Church of the Holy Spirit in Javorca.
