The Austro-Hungarian military cemetery was started directly behind the first front line after the Sixth Isonzo Battle (August 1916) when the front moved to Panovec. Buried in the cemetery are Austro-Hungarian soldiers who fell in the area between Mt. Škabrijel and Panovec, and among them were also Italian soldiers. After the World War I the Italian authorities organized exhumation of mortal remains of their soldiers and transferred them to the Italian charnel house at Oslavia/Oslavje, while 692 Austro-Hungarian soldiers were left in the cemetery.
In the 1980s, the cemetery was rearranged and headstones were set in rows.

Access and useful info

Access

The military cemetery Loke lies among vineyards on the southern fringe of the village of Loke. The easiest access is to go from Kromberk towards Ajševica. After a long field plane between Kromberk and Ajševica, turn left before the main junction towards Loke. After a good 600 metres, turn left at the first junction, and after a good 200 metres turn left again at the next junction. A few tens of metres after that junction you will see a cart track on the right side of the road, which leads to the small cemetery surrounded by a vineyard.
