The Austro-Hungarian military cemetery Ravnica lies east of the civil cemetery at the fringe of Ravnica village. During the War, there were several military cemeteries in this area that were merged in the post-war years. According to the data of Italian authorities that organized exhumation of soldiers from military cemeteries in the 1930s, 638 soldiers are buried here, who fell mainly in the area of Mt. Škabrijel.
Preserved in the cemetery are the central monument in the form of a cross standing on the built pedestal, with the inscription tablet, and some individual rock headstones. Other grave markers or gravestones have not been preserved.
