Not far from the church of St. Lawrence at Zalošče, a cemetery of Austro-Hungarian soldiers is located. Not many visible traces of this cemetery survive. The only memento is the central monument dedicated to the fallen soldiers of the 22nd Regiment of Reservists from the Chernivtsi (Czernowitz) recruitment area in the onetime Bukowina (now in Ukraine). According to the data of Italian authorities that organized exhumation of soldiers from military cemeteries in the 1930s, 201 soldiers are buried here.
