Historical overview

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