Javorca Memorial Church and its cultural landscape, Slovenia

European Heritage Label site, Javorca Church (Tolmin, Slovenia)

Javorca Memorial Church is a unique piece of Art Nouveau built in the mountains by soldiers of the WWI Isonzo Front to remember fallen soldiers regardless of their origin and culture. Today the church and its cultural landscape continue to symbolise this call for reconciliation and the unifying power of collaborative artistic creation and construction.
