The fate of the cemetery
The Austrians made the cemetery very carefully, but over time it was subject to natural destruction . In 1984, it was renovated. However, the original appearance of the cemetery was not preserved. Crosses from gravestones were welded in pairs to frames made of tubes with inscriptions defining the nationality of the fallen. On the one hand, shrines in 4 graves were buried Russian soldiers, in the back of the chapel in two graves, also Russian soldiers, in 4 graves on the other side of the chapel of Austrian soldiers. In the back of the cemetery there are two original, cast-iron, open-work, two-armed crosses of the Orthodox type. [source: Wikipedia, 2777881]
