The fate of the cemetery
The object is after a thorough renovation, which was quite extensive. During the renovation, the brush and other weedy vegetation were removed and the cemetery field was leveled. Renovation of the fence required, among others, the performance of new wooden elements, the walling of two new posts and a pedestal. The chapel was renovated, and the wooden shingles were replaced with bituminous shingles. In the cemetery area, pedestals with crosses were placed again, and an information board next to the road.
