The Austro-Hungarian cemetery is situated in the near vicinity of the civil cemetery at Sežana. Buried there are those Austro-Hungarian soldiers who died in the reserve war hospital at Sežana during World War I. The first graves date from the mid-August 1916, and the last ones from the end of September 1918. After the War, while managing military cemeteries, the Italian Military Authorities transferred to this cemetery mortal remains of soldiers from the nearby military and civil cemeteries. According to accessible information, 340 soldiers of the Austro-Hungarian Army are buried here, together with several Russian, Romanian and Serbian POWs.
