Welcome to Kobarid

On the surface not a whole lot has changed since Ernest Hemingway described Kobarid (then Caporetto) in A Farewell to Arms (1929) as ‘a little white town with a campanile in a valley’, with ‘a fine fountain in the square’. The bell in the tower still rings on the hour, but, sadly, the fountain has disappeared.
