Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. The oldest preserved gravestone relates to the mid-19th century, so it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged during that period. First, it appears on a Russian map of 1907 and, later, it was marked on a map of 1917.
