It is better known for a battle which took place in 1917 during the first World War when the town was known as Caporetta. This was when the Italian army was defeated by the combined forces of the Central Powers. There is an excellent museum in the town that is well worth a visit if you are in the area. It houses a permanent exhibition about World War 1 as well as various travelling exhibitions. Kobarid is also on the route of the Walk of Peace and is a good starting point for visiting some of the First World War outdoor museums - read more about the museums and what you can see
