The cemetery was founded in 1855. Initially, it had an area of 0.7 hectares and only military and policemen were buried there. In subsequent years, he was also made available to civilians. In 1886, a cemetery chapel was built at the cemetery. St. Alexius. In 1988, the cemetery was expanded by another 0.2 ha. From 1970 Catholic funerals are also held at the cemetery. This was due to the lack of empty seats after leaving most of the Russians after 1918 and the poor financial condition of the Orthodox parish. [source: Wikipedia, 1347982]
