Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. The oldest preserved gravestone relates to the 1700s, so it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged in the late 17th century or during the first year of the 18th century. First, it appears on Austrian maps of the 1860s. Later it was marked on the map of the 1880s.
