During the First World War the locals were mostly transferred to the Šta-
jerska region due to the battles taking place at the Isonzo Front. There is a
historical walking trail that leads from one of the largest Austro-Hungarian
military burial places at the Isonzo Front (with more than 10,000 soldiers
buried), down the valley, where the rests of a military hospital and railroad
can be seen.
The church of St. Andrew and a monument to the victims of the Second
World War can be found on the square. Among other things, there is also
the home of the Štrekelj brothers Anton (a faming expert) and Dr. Karel
Štrekelj (journalist, linguist and collector of traditional folk material). Every
year the Štrekelj award is delivered to his memory.
Numerous wells, the village kal and the water collector supplying the
drinking troughs with water, are reminders of the shortage of water in this
region. However, the village surroundings offer numerous trails, making it
an ideal place for strolling and cycling.
