The Austro-Hungarian ossuary stands to the left of the entrance to the civil cemetery. Buried in it are 571 soldiers, of whom only 117 were identified. Their names are written on the commemorative plaque. The ossuary was restored on the occasion of the burial of an Austrian soldier (30 June 2016) who had been unearthed during the works on the motorway. The nationality of the soldier was identified thanks to bottom part of his uniform.
