The military cemetery lies on a gentle slope below the lower Vogel cable car station, above the road leading towards the Savica Waterfall. There are 282 graves in straight rows, surrounded by natural stones, with wooden crosses on concrete pedestals. The cemetery is enclosed by a wooden fence.￼ At the end of the path leading from the entrance with a forged iron door and a portal bearing the dates 1914 – 1918, there is a 1.5-metar stone monument, dedicated to the fallen soldiers, the heroes of Krn and the defenders of Bohinj in the years from 1915 to 1916, which is emphasised by the German and Slovenian inscriptions. A wooden chapel, made from spruce logs and covered with shingles, maintained by the local painter Valentin Hodnik for several years, stands in the middle of the cemetery. There is a smaller tower on top of it. In front of the chapel, there are a few stone steps. A memorial plaque to the dead soldiers of different nations is built in the pedestal. Location: next to the Zlatorog - Savica road, just under the lower Vogel cable car station.Plan my Bohinjsko Jezero trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
