The Goriska region
Goriška is a traditional region in western Slovenia on the border with Italy. The name means "the Gorizia region" because it is named after Gorizia, Italy. It is part of the wider traditional region of the Slovenian Littoral (Primorska). Its principal urban center is Nova Gorica. It is entirely included in the Goriška statistical region.
Before World War I, the region was part of the Austrian County of Gorizia and Gradisca, with Gorizia as its capital. Following World War I, the area was annexed by the Kingdom of Italy, where it was included in the Julian March administrative region. During the fascist regime it was submitted to a violent policy of Italianization. After World War II, the present borders were established: most of the Slovene-inhabited areas of Gorizia and Gradisca were ceded to the Yugoslav republic of Slovenia, while the town of Gorizia and some surrounding villages were left in Italy.
The region encompasses the municipalities of Bovec, Kobarid, Tolmin, Cerkno, Idrija, Kanal ob Soci, Brda, Nova Gorica, Šempeter-Vrtojba, Rence-Vogrsko, Miren-Kostanjevica, Ajdovšcina, and Vipava. The municipalities of Komen and Sežana also used to be part of the Gorizia region, but are now usually considered part of the Littoral-Kras statistical region.
The location of Podmelec and the surrounding areas can only be described as magical, unspoilt and pristine. Wildlife and a variety of outdoor attractions and activities are abundant close by, in particular; paragliding, cycling, mountain biking, trekking, bird watching and hunting. The house lies at 305m above sea level in the foothills of the Julian Alps.
The village itself is situated above the Baca River, an established and popular fly fishing destination (the Idrijca and Soca rivers are also close by). The Slap Sopota waterfall (66m) is within walking distance of the village. The edge of the Triglav National Park can be reached within a 15 minute drive time. Convenience stores and shops are available close by in both Tolmin and Most na Soci.
