Description of the cemetery
A small cemetery designed by Heinrich Scholz was built on a rectangular plan with a small protrusion in the form of a projection from the side of the slope. It is surrounded by a full stone wall covered with a concrete window sill. The entrance to the cemetery leads through a forged two-winged gate flanked by two pillars. The monument is a wall separated from the plane of the rear fence by means of two pillars, built of stone blocks. In the middle of the recess between these pillars rises a high wooden Latin cross. On both sides, plates with dates 1914 and 1915 were placed in Roman numerals. The tombs of the fallen soldiers were placed in three rows. Tombstones are concrete steles. The gravestones of Russian soldiers are topped by a cast iron two-arm cross, on the steles there are white tin plates with the inscription 1 RUSS KRIEGER. "Three graves of Austro-Hungarian soldiers are in the center of the middle row, distinguishable from the Russian with a single-handed cross with a name inscription. 2017 is in very good condition .
