Cmentarz wojenny nr 350 Nowy Sącz
War Cemetery no. 350 in Nowy Sącz
ul. Rejtana, 33-300 Nowy Sącz Tourist subregion: Beskidzki
Type of historical sites: Cemetery
The southwest part of the communal cemetery at Rejtana Street is taken by the large war quarter – War Cemetery no. 350 of the 10th Limanowa cemetery district, designed by Gustav Ludwig.
Initially, the cemetery was much larger, but it was partially taken over by private, newer burials. The semi-circular colonnade surrounding the tall central obelisk with a sculpture of the knight leaning on a large sword is the most characteristic element of the cemetery that is visible from afar. The cemetery is the burial site of 905 Austro-Hungarian, 119 German and 252 Russian soldiers who were killed in action in November and December of 1914, and who also died in the subsequent months in the hospitals of Nowy Sącz.
