Military cemetery at Bovec

Military cemetery by Bovec

The concrete tombstones with equal-armed crosses are dedicated to the Austro-Hungarian soldiers who died on Rombon and Čukla during the Isonzo Front.

After World War I the cemetery was renewed. The remains of soldiers from several other nearby cemeteries were moved to this cemetery. The remains of the Italian soldiers were transported to the ossuary in Kobarid in 1938. The graves of Austro-Hungarian soldiers are spread across the entire cemetery, however, only a quarter of them are marked with concrete tombstones. About 600 soldiers who fought at the Isonzo Front lie here.

There is an obelisk made of cut stone in the rear, which is dedicated to the memory of the fallen soldiers.
