It stands out along the long wall with a figure of the soldier in a legionary uniform and the “Maciejówka” fiddler-style cap on the head, and the inscription, “For you, Poland, and for your glory 1914-1918.”
It is the burial site of 19 legionaries killed during the war, and the legionaries originating from Nowy Sącz who died in later years. It was founded by the Legionaries’ Association in 1927. The Legion units were among the forces that recaptured Nowy Sącz from the Russian hands in December of 1914.
