The Isonzo (in Italian) or Soča (in Slovenian) is a 138 km long river that flows through western Slovenia (96 kilometres) and northeastern Italy (43 kilometres). An Alpine river in character, its source lies in the Trenta Valley in the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia, at an elevation of 876 metres. The river runs past the towns of Bovec, Kobarid, Tolmin, Kanal ob Soči, Nova Gorica (SLO) and Gorizia (ITA), entering the Adriatic Sea close to the Italian town of Monfalcone.
Due to its emerald-green water, the river is marketed as "The Emerald Beauty." It is said to be one of the rare rivers in the world that retains such a colour throughout their length.Giuseppe Ungaretti, one of the greatest Italian poets, describes the Isonzo in the poem "The Rivers."
The Soča valley was the stage of major military operations including the twelve battles of the Isonzo on the Italian front in World War I between May 1915 and November 1917, in which over 500,000 Austro-Hungarian and Italian soldiers lost their lives.
During his stay with Italian troops, Ernerst Hemingway, in his "A Farewell to Arms" wrote about these wounderfull landscapes and bloody river. As american war voluntary in a foreign country, he never forgot this pearl of nature and these waters of patriotic sacrifice till his death in 1961.
