A0003 - Kostanjevica - The monument-signpost near Lokvica
The monument - signpost was erected in honour of Archduke Josef, the Commanding Officer of the 7th Austro-Hungarian Army Corps. It was built by the members of the 43rd k.u.k. Infantry Regiment from Karánsebes (today in Romania).
The same regiment also constructed a road named after the 7th Army Corps' commander - "ERZHERZOG JOSEPH STRASSE" (The Archduke Josef's Road). On the south side of the road, there once stood another inscription plaque, which is now missing.
On the rear is visible the inscription ERBAUT VOM K.u.K. IR 43 (built by the 43rd k.u.k Infantry Regiment). Part of the monument also has grenades placed on all corners and on the top of the monument.

Translation of message interpretation
The monument-signpost is situated on the left side of the tarmac road, which leads from Lokvice towards Kostanjevica. We follow the tarmac road which leads from Lokvice towards the top of Cerje Hill. After approx. 450m another tarmac road splits to the right towards the west. After about 1300m we find on the right the monument-signpost and next to it the "Boroevic Throne".
The monument-signpost is well preserved. The monument. – signpost and the surrounding area were renovated in 2003. The renovation was financed by the Miren -Kostanjevica County with the help of the PHARE program.
