At Branik, or rather in its vicinity, there are two Austro-Hungarian World War I military cemeteries. Buried in these two cemeteries are mainly soldiers who fell on the nearby battlefields or died in the military hospital at Branik.
According to the data of Italian authorities that organized exhumation of soldiers from military cemeteries in the 1930s, more than 400 Austro-Hungarian soldiers are buried at the Branik II cemetery. Of the original war cemetery only three officers’ graves have been completely preserved, while the rest were levelled and grassed.
In 2008, a monument was erected in this cemetery to the memory of Romanian soldiers who had fallen on the Isonzo Front.
