Lychakiv military cemetery
From September 3, 1914 until June 22, 1915, Lviv was occupied by Russian troops. To bury the soldiers fallen in the taking of the city, the Foundation of Countess Bobrinskaya, wife of the Russian Governor of Lviv organized a separate cemetery on the hills above the Glowacki Park in 1914-1915 - the so-called Glory Hill. After the retreat of the Russian army, the remains were exhumed and transferred to the Austrian military cemetery, which was laid in 1915 in the north-eastern part of the Lychakiv cemetery.
