Monument for the National Liberation War is situated at the top of the hill Drca in Vrhnika. It is the powerful monument, which was made by the sculptor Boris Kalin and planed by architect Boris Kobe. It was erected in the year 1950 and it is made from stone. The easiest way to the monument is, if you go from the direction of Mocilnik, where you can also park the car. There are also other ways to the hill. From the monument for the National Liberation War is the wonderful view to city Vrhnika. The fight for the liberation of Vrhnika started in the 5th of May in the year 1945. The 11th and 15th brigade liberated town only the next day after the tiresome and badly fights. Beside the monument is also the tomb and the memorial plate. In the tomb are buried the poet Ivan Rob, writer Karel Grabeljskek – Gaber (1906 – 1985) and many other partisans.
