The military cemetery of the Austro-Hungarian soldiers fallen in World War I lies behind the little church of St. Joseph and the civil cemetery at Soča village. On the slope above the cemetery a large cross made of stones is dedicated to the fallen soldiers, with a grenade fixed on a rock above it. The original Austro-Hungarian hospital cemetery was extended after the war. More than 1,400 soldiers and POWs are buried in it.
You can reach the village of Soča from Bovec (10.5 km) or over the Vršič Pass (22.5 km). The military cemetery lies behind the church of St. Joseph and the public cemetery.
