  • The Internet presented as if there's a solid piece of art and mass graves is very significant and important personalities. Entry 20 Gr.

No offense (brothers of Ukrainians), but for most of us the names buried there is not known and does not carry much significance. For Ukrainians, Poles-Yes!

  • Worth visiting if you have time in Lviv. There's a variety of languages and gravestone styles due to the face that Lviv was part of multiple different countries throughout history. Don't miss the grave of Ivan Franko, the famous Ukrainian poet/writer.
  • Красиво и позновательно.
  • Must go!
