Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. Given the oldest preserved tombstone dates to 1894, it can be inferred it was founded no later than the late 19th century. The cemetery can be found marked on Austro-Hungarian maps of the region from the 1860s and 1880s.
