Most na Soči

Most na Soči 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 well-kept, panoramic and none too demanding paths.  Exceptional archaeological finds – more than 7000 grave sites discovered so far – rank this location among one of the most important prehistoric settlements in the Europe. Rich finds date back in the period from the late Bronze Age to the Roman period. Most of them originate from the Iron Age community, which was named after our settlement as the “Sveta Lucija Culture”.  The restored and protected remains of a Roman house are located in Most na Soči. Another monument from the town’s long history is the church of St. Maurus. The first written record of the church dates from 1192. Another interesting site is a monument to soldiers from the World War I at Postaja.  The principal natural adornment of Most na Soči is its lake. Although artificial, it is of the same unique colour as mysterious Soča. To the town it bestows an atmosphere of tranquillity and softness and offers plenty of opportunities for recreation.  A feature of geological interest is flat limestone layers at Pod Ključem.
