Krn is the name of a mountain in northwestern Slovenia. It is part of the Julian Alps and with an elevation of 2.244 metres it is the highest peak of the Krn Mountains. During World War I the area around Krn and neighbouring Batognica was a hard-fought place. During the so called “Battles of the Isonzo” the peak of Batognica was blown off by an accidental weapon depot explosion. Even today remains of this era can be found. After climbing up mount Krn the top offers a beautiful 360 degree view, including a magnificent sight of Lužnica Lake.
