Description of the cemetery
Designed by Heinrich Scholz on a rectangular plan. The fence creates a wooden fence fence with bays suspended on solid, stone posts. Entrance through a two-wing wooden gate. The central monument is a wooden cross with a statue of Christ. The head of Christ is crowned with metal glory, and the arms of the cross are covered with a gable roof and reinforced with slanted supports. Tombstones of soldiers were arranged in irregular rows. They have concrete steles topped with cast-iron crosses of three types. On the graves of soldiers of the Austro-Hungarian army, these are Maltese or Latin crosses, on the graves of soldiers of the Russian army two-armed Lorraine crosses. There are also tin signs with the names of soldiers on the steles . Within the cemetery there are handsome beech trees. [source: Wikipedia, 2407489]

The fate of the cemetery
The Austrians made the cemetery very carefully, but over time it was subject to natural destruction. In 2001, it was renovated. The terrain was leveled, a new wooden fence was made, a new entrance gate, a new cross with a replica of Christ's sculpture, new gravestones with new cast-iron crosses and new tin signs were set up. .
