War cemetery in Podłęże, founded in 1914, in the place of the fights (in 1914 the eastern front ran directly at Podłęże). As a spatial composition it was shaped in 1916 according to the design by Lt. Franz Stark. A key role is played by a concrete cross, highlighted by the location in the central axis, at its base there is superimposed a characteristic Austrian cross adorned with a laurel wreath - date 1914. On the sides four smaller wrought iron crosses. The cemetery fenced with chains stretched between concrete pillars. Resting place of 3 Russians and 1 Austrian. Despite a small spatial scale it implements fully compositional formula of war cemeteries as a monument of the fallen and documenting the struggles in the region.
