Description of the cemetery
It is a small cemetery located in the center of Szczyrzyc, at the intersection of roads to Jodłownik and Skrzydlna. The main decorative element is the chapel, which existed here before the cemetery was built. The cemetery is fenced, and old lindens grow around. The fence is made of concrete pillars, between which three rows of steel pipes are inserted. Inside the fence there are various types of tombstones with tin name plates and topped with various types of cast-iron crosses . [source: Wikipedia, 2043799]
The fate of the cemetery
Austrians designed and executed war cemeteries with great gusto. They were intended to be a place of patriotic meetings. At the same time, they showed enormous respect for the enemies, in one cemetery hiding soldiers of both fighting armies, and for all performing equally representative tombstones . Originally, the cemetery had a slightly different appearance, but over time it underwent natural destruction processes. The original fence was completely destroyed, replaced with a metal mesh . Later, the cemetery was repaired, based on the preserved plans, recreating its original appearance. It is currently in very good condition . [source: Wikipedia, 2043799]
