To the right of the civilian cemetery in Hotedršica, a military cemetery was organized in 1915, where foreign soldiers were buried. About 50 Austro-Hungarian soldiers, fallen in World War I, are buried here. They were of Hungarian, Czech and Austrian nationality. In addition to them, 9 WW2 partisans are also buried here. In 2020, a document was found in Vienna archives, stating that 22 soldiers of foreign armies had been buried here by the end of February 1917.
Surrounded by a low wall, the cemetery is arranged as a rectangular park with four grass rectangles. In the northern part, between two birches, there is a monument dedicated to the fallen in World War I. More to the south stands a monument dedicated to the fallen in World War II.
