Kobarid (Italian: Caporetto, Friulian: Cjaurêt, German: Karfreit) is a town and a municipality in the Upper Soča Valley, western Slovenia, near the Italian border.

Kobarid is known for the Battle of Caporetto, where the Italian retreat was documented by Ernest Hemingway in his novel A Farewell to Arms.

The adjacent Tonocov Grad archaeological site has remains of 5th-century Roman buildings.
