And the Kobarid museum which is dedicated to the WWI and the Isonzo front. It was one of the best museums in Europe.

So, the outer layer and the layer where they put the dirt around. The soil. So they will keep the water preserved. That’s one of the ways how they survived for so long. There was a roof above the cistern.
