A narrow and steep asphalt road leads through the Golanka forest, blindly ending at the houses at the top of the hill (hamlet Ptasi Dzioł). On its left, below the top of the hill, there is an information plaque on the cemetery. He is invisible from this road. A forest road leads to it. On the right side of the cemetery there is a deep creek canyon that flows into Biała . [source: Wikipedia, 2776840]

The fate of the cemetery
In 1915, after winning the battle at Gorlice and driving the Russians further east, the Austro-Hungarian monarchy proceeded to the construction of cemeteries. After World War II, unfortunately, cemeteries from the First World War were not cared for. They were naturally destroyed by natural factors, and there were also acts of vandalism Cemetery No. 147 has been preserved in a fairly good condition, but requires renovation. Status in 2015: no fence (only two sloping posts of the entrance gate have survived), concrete steles inclined and overgrown with mosses and algae, crosses rust, some of them are broken off, name plates are barely legible. A renovation of the cemetery is planned. [source: Wikipedia, 2776840]
