Within the framework of military road construction between Kostanjevica and Lokvica the members of the 43rd Infantry Regiment from Caransebeș (Romania) set up a monument, or waymark respectively, in honour of Archduke Joseph, commander of the Seventh Austro-Hungarian Corps. This road was also named after him: Erzherzog Joseph Strasse. Next to the memorial stands a stone throne which was named after the commander of the Fifth Austro-Hungarian Army, Svetozar Boroević von Bojna. In the direct vicinity several other remains can also be found. Worth seeing are, for example, the remains of the Segeti encampment, Srčandol (the valley of Santa Barbara), several monuments and memorials, water troughs, etc.
