  • Although the way to Javorca was slightly scary because of the precipice, it was worth it. The church is very beautiful. Also the landscape.

  • Church Javorca is not just a church. It is a promoter of peace. The strongest antiwar monument after the 'war museum in Kobarid'. With hike to springs of Tolminka river for me a highlight of Soča Valley!
  • This church is an impressive call for peace. Really worth visiting and to listen to the guide explaining the history of this church.
  • It was enlightening stop during the hike. The church is beautiful with a very inspiring story. The guardian/guide was very knowledgeable and interesting person to talk to. I strongly advise the visit!
  • We ll worth the walk to this amazing place which is full of history.
  • Its a nice place but i wonder if its worth the effort. Its a 20 minute drive from tolmin, with the roads being very narrow and winding. Followed by a steep walk uphill for about 1km. But the church is very pretty, with a very nice view.
