On tombstones there are inscriptions in many different languages – Ukrainian, Latin, Polish, German, Russian and others.

First burials on this site appeared in the Middle Ages; victims of plaque epidemics were buried here.

Many monuments in the cemetery were made by famous Lviv sculptors – there are masterpieces by Hartman Witwer, Anton Schimser, Parys Filippi, Sergiy Lytvynenko and many others.

Presidents of Ukraine and Poland visited the cemetery in 2005 for the opening ceremony of Polish and Ukrainian military memorials.

This place has its own mystic stories that will make your blood run cold. Our guide will tell you about mysteries of the tomb of the Templar, the great suicide, the walking sculpture and the secret of the banker’s tomb in form of a safe.
