The most beautiful World War I monument is a wooden shrine that rises high above the Tolminka riverbed – the memorial church of the Holy Spirit in Javorca. The church in the walley of Polog was built by Austrian soldiers in 1916, to the design of the Austrian architect Remgius Geyling.
The outside of the church is decorated with stylised coats-of-arms of all the monarchies and lands of Austria-Hungary. The interior is classic art nouveau, adorned with colourful decorations. The idea of a memorial church is communicated through engraved oak plaques bearing the names of all the Austro-Hungarian soldiers who lost their lives on the hills of Vodil vrh, Mrzli vrh, Rdeči rob and Sleme.
Owing to its predominantly wooden construction, prone to rapid decay, and severe weather conditions, the church has undergone several renovations, the most recent one being in 2005. The church in Javorca was proclaimed a historical monument with the 1990 Order declaring natural and historical monuments and natural attractions in the Municipality of Tolmin.
