Presentation of the municipality

The municipality of Kanal ob Soci (Soca being the Slovenian name of the river known in Italian as Isonzo, a site of long battles in the First World War) is located some 10 km north of Nova Gorica, on the Italian border. It was formed in 1995 by secession from Nova Gorica. The town of Kanal is on the site of an important river crossing over Soca, where there is a masoned bridge, as shown on the municipal coat of arms.
