Description of the cemetery
It has the shape of a rectangle and is located as a separate accommodation on the parish cemetery in Bobowa. It was designed by the Polish architect Jan Szczepkowski. The entrance gate is located on the side of the road No. 981 connecting Bobowa with Grybów and is very similar to the cemeteries 119 and 134 designed by this architect. These are two massive, stone posts with a metal gate, and a concrete stairway leading to them with a wall on both sides. The main monument is a large iron, forged Latin cross with a height of 10 m. At the ends of the arms and at their junction are intricate metal glories. This type of cross does not occur in any other cemetery in the Łuşna district. The fence consists of stone posts made of stone, a concrete foundation, and metal balustrade segments suspended between the posts. Tombstones of soldiers in the form of metal crosses on a concrete plinth. In the base of the cross a personalized plaque is integrated Oktawian Duda Cemeteries of the First World War in Western Galicia 1914-1918, Center for the Protection of Historic Landscape, Warsaw 1995, .

The fate of the cemetery
After the Second World War, cemeteries from the First World War were not cared for and they were subject to natural destruction, and acts of vandalism were also occurring. . In 2014, from the Voivode's budget, a general renovation of cemetery No. 133 was carried out and an information board was installed. The cross designed by J. Szczepkowski became a model for imitators - on the hill above the road Zborowice - Łuşna, his replica was made, slightly lower and painted white. [source: Wikipedia, 2434321]
