Evangelical Cemetery - located in Gawłów in the Bochnia district of the Małopolska province. As a result of the First Partition of Poland, the Bochnia Land found itself in the Austrian monarchy. At the end of the 18th century, a settlement campaign called Josephine colonization was started in Austria, also in the area of Galicia. The action also covered Bochnia and around. In the years 1785-1790, a group of German-speaking Protestant settlers arrived in Gawłowa and the so-called Nowy Gawłów. Some of them were Evangelical-Augsburg confessions, so an Evangelical congregation was formed. In 1806, a house of prayer was built. The building exists until today, since 1945 is the parish church of St. Gawłow. Andrzej Bobola. In the same year, a cemetery was created next to the house of prayer. A small necropolis is located on the western side of the road from Bochnia to Uście Solny. It is an irregular quadrangle with an area of about 20 ares. Over 20 tombstones have been preserved on it. Protestants left the town at the end of World War II. At the turn of 1944 and 1945, they evacuated together with the German army to the west. Since then, the cemetery is not used for burials. There is a small rectangular quarters on the western corner where the Austrians who died in the vicinity of Gawłowa buried during the First World War: 10 Austro-Hungarian and 2 Russian soldiers, creating a war cemetery No. 316.
