Geocache Description:

ENG: This is an easy small Cache, less than 200 m from the road.
The hidding spot is out of the view form cemetery and not dangerous to reach. Still, be careful in wet conditions!
SI: Preprost mali zakladek, skoraj dosegljiv z avtom.
Mikro lokacija se s pokopališča ne vidi in dostop ni nevaren. V mokrem pa le previdno!


(ENG) REST IN PEACE
This cemetery is one of many WWI memorials along the Isonzo front.

It is set in the peaceful surroundings between village and steep mountain slope.
Soca valley has not been so green in the time of WWI. That is clearly visible at old photos.

In the time of war 304 Austro-Hungarian soldiers, 8 Russian prisoners and unknown number of Italian soldiers found their resting place here. Majority of them have died from June 1915 to October 1917 on the Javoršček-Krn part of Isonzo front. After the war remains of Italian soldiers have been exhumed and transported to other cemeteries, but many Austro-Hungarians previously buried from mountain pasture Duplje to Golobar have been transferred here.
The total number of inhumed in Soča military cemetery, as far as today's data, is 1406 known and 59 unknown soldiers. For another 44 soldiers it is not certain whether they have also been buried here or at some other place.
Cemetery is built in four terases and has a large rocks-set-cross at the grassy slope behind graves. A cannon shell is set at the rock above cross as a simple monument and memorial to the war victims.

CACHE BOX volume is only 0,2 litres, just for small items!

(SI) POČIVAJTE V MIRU
To pokopališče je le eno od mnogih mnogih spomenikov udeležencem 1. svetovne vojne na Soški fronti.
[image 1]
Postavljeno je v prijetno okolje, med vasico in strmo gorsko pobočje. V času vojne je bila pokrajina tu naokrog precej manj zelena kot danes, kar je razvidno tudi s starih posnetkov.
[images 2, 3]
Med vojno so bili tu pokopani 304 avstro-ogrski vojaki in 8 ruskih ujetnikov ter neznano število italijanskih vojakov. Po vojni so prenesli vse ostanke padlih italijanskih vojakov v grobnice po Italiji, v Sočo pa so bili prekopani vojaki iz večih pokopališč od planine Duplje do Golobarja.
Skupno je tu po sedanjih podatkih 1406 znanih in 59 neznanih žrtev vojne. Za dodatnih 44 vojakov ni gotovo ali so jih pokopali v Soči ali kje drugje.
Pokopališče ima terasasto obliko, v bregu nad zadnjo teraso, je iz kamenja oblikovan križ. Nad križem je na veliki skali postavljena topovska granata, preprost pomnik umrlim.

ZAKLAD je škatlica prostornine 0,2 litra, le za majhne predmete!
