First World War Military Cemetery Štanjel, Slovenia

In the vicinity of Štanjel there is an Austro-Hungarian military cemetery where Austro-Hungarian soldiers and Russian POWs are buried who had died in the nearby war hospital in Štanjel Castle or its subsidiary hospital premises in the surroundings. Already during the Isonzo Front the architect Joseph Ulrich prepared an architectural design for the cemetery at the end of which he planned to erect a grandiose scenic temple facade; the works were only completed in 1918. According to the data of the Italian authorities that managed in the 1930s the disinterring of their soldiers from military cemeteries, 1,315 soldiers are buried here.
