Korada is the highest point of Brda. The mountain rising 812 above the sea level is also named Kobalar by the locals, after a farm of a well-known farmer Kobalar, a figure in interesting stories that are still being told today. At the Kobalar farm, farmers from Brda had their mountain meadows which were never used as pastures. Hiking on Korada which offers magnificent views in all directions is a beautiful experience in all seasons and the meadows are full of colorful flowers most time of the year. In the sheltered position below the summit there is a small mountain hut open to visitors on weekends. Not far below the hut a small Church of St. Gertrude (Genderca in local dialect) can be visited which is also a convenient resting point on the way up to the top. It is said that the name of Korada is derived from the word korajduc, an old Slavic word for limestone. Korada is one of the most popular destinations among the locals. It can be reached by hiking trails from Brda, the Soča valley and Sabotin.
