The cemetery is located on a hill 402 m above sea level on the Pogórze Wiśnicki. The top of the hill is wooded, and the cemetery is located on its southern edge, by a dirt, dirt road. From this road only a large stone obelisk is visible through the branches of trees. From the forestless grounds near the cemetery, extensive views of the Beskid Wyspowy, especially the one in the foreground Kostrza . [source: Wikipedia, 2533651]
The fate of the cemetery
Immediately after the battle, the soldiers collected from battlefields in neighboring towns and those who died in field hospitals were buried in the graves on the site of the current cemetery. The Dydyński family from the manor in Słupia donated the land for the cemetery . Later, when, as a result of the victorian-Limanowa operation for the Austrians and the battle of Gorlice, the front moved further east, the Austrians proceeded to build a representative cemetery . The works were mainly carried out by Italian and Russian prisoners. After completing the construction of the solemn dedication of the church, a priest from Szczyrzyc made it. The ceremony was attended by the court in Słupia and local school youth with teachers . In the interwar period, the cemetery was still in good condition as new. After World War II, the importance of the cemetery in the awareness of the society and the then authorities decreased, because new, more recent cemeteries and dramatic stories of the new war came. School youth tidied up the cemetery before the All Saints Day and lighted the candles, but the cemetery was naturally destroyed by weather and vegetation factors. It was only from the 1990s that more care was started for World War I cemeteries . This one has also undergone a general renovation and currently looks a bit different than it was originally. Moguiły were leveled, and tombstones spread parallel along the walls. Instead of the original iron gate, which was destroyed, a wooden gate was made . Tombstones' plates were taken for safekeeping.
