Štoln Tunnel Featured


The Štoln mine tunnel is located near the fire station. It was made in 1905 to drain water from a lead mine in Rablje, Italy. The tunnel is 4.8 km long and was strategically important as it allowed the safe flow of troops and equipment to the Isonzo Front. The mine was closed in 1991. At the renovated entrance to the shaft, an exhibition was organized in 2005 with a historical display and a locomotive used during the operation of the mine.
