Description

The fighting from the First World War is resembled by a war cemetery in the village of Hostovice. War events approached the village at the turn of 1914 and 1915, when the front line settled north over the village on the Skory ridge. A large number of soldiers have fallen in the battle for this field.

The war cemetery in Hostovice is located in the area of a municipal cemetery. 112 soldiers found here the last resting place. At the time of its establishment, it was a separate cemetery, but gradually merged with the general cemetery.

As per names, there are 104 Austro-Hungarian soldiers. The cemetery consists of 47 war graves, of which 25 are individual graves, 18 graves common and 4 graves are mass graves. The last time the burial has taken place here was on April 13, 1923, when the remains of two unknown soldiers were laid to rest.
