Monument to the Victims of the National Liberation War on the Banjšice and Trnovo Plateau

On the edge of the Trnovo Plateau there is the village of Trnovo where the Monument to and the sepulchre of the National Liberation War Victims can be visited. The monument, which is dedicated to 256 fallen Partisan fighters of the IX Corps, is the work of art of architect Edo Ravnikar and can be found at the hill-foot of Mount Kobilnik. The sepulchre was set-up in form of a platform with a panoramic view. Around the hill there goes a sandy path which connects the sepulchre with the hill-foot and where in the years 1981 - 1983 a Memorial amphitheatre was erected. Here the names of more than 2300 fallen Partisan fighters and victims of the National Liberation War are remembered. In 2005, on initiative of the White Dove Foundation (Fundacija Beli Golob), an ever-burning light of peace was lit in a glass - stone lantern.
