Historical overview

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

According to local auhorities, there used to be a second cemetery in Vinne, an elder one, which was located on the way to Stranyany, in around 3,5 kilometers from Vinne (48.776897,21.941318) and no traces of it preserved today. However, we could not find any other evidences for that.
