The cemetery is located as a separate quarter in the municipal cemetery in Rzepiennik StrĹźyĹźewski . The designer was Jan Szczepkowski. The cemetery was built on a rectangular plan on a slope descending towards the canyon. The main decorative element is a tall and visible obelisk from afar. It is set on a stepped, three-step, concrete foundation and made of stone cut. On the front wall has a large, white painted Latin cross. The fence of the cemetery consists of solid stone posts made of stones, between which metal pipes are hung. In the corners there are fragments of a full wall, and there are stone benches. Tombstones spread out originally, not in rows as in most West Goral cemeteries, but radially. 4 officers tombstones differ from the others. They are placed in front of the front of the obelisk and have cast-iron Latin crosses with a round glory embedded on a concrete plinth. All the fallen officers were in the rank of lieutenant. The remaining tombstones are concrete steles with crosses on the front : There are two entrances to the cemetery. One leads through several spiral steps from the lower side of the cemetery (currently rarely used), the other from the municipal cemetery . [source: Wikipedia, 3475356]

The fate of the cemetery
In 1915, after winning the battle at Gorlice and driving the Russians further east, the Austro-Hungarian monarchy proceeded to the construction of cemeteries. After World War II, the importance of the cemetery in the awareness of society and the authorities at that time decreased, they were not cared for and they were destroyed . However, this cemetery has been preserved in quite good condition, and its renovation has been carried out. Among others the missing fence pipes were completed, and the steles were painted white. Currently, however, it is slightly different from the original one. At the bottom gate there is an information board. [source: Wikipedia, 3475356]
