Unique Jewish [read more .
Wasted memory A number of years have passed since the exiled French Bourbons found their last refuge in the Goriška region (1836). Their last representatives, led by the former King Charles X, rest in a tomb under the church next to the Franciscan monastery in Kostanjevica / Kapela above (Nova) Gorica.

They belong to the municipality of Komen. Both Foxes are [read more .
Ravne belongs to the parish of Črniče and to the local community of Črniče-Ravne. The name is quite common, so we should not confuse it with Drežniške or Dolenji Ravne, as well as with other places with this name. There are smaller hamlets in Ravne: Ušaji, Ipavci, Tabor and Slejki. 142 people live in the village. Not all house numbers are written because […]read more .
