The Monument Board of the Slovak Republic officially recognised two new national cultural monuments in the central record of the monument fund. These war cemeteries are located in Svidník in the Medzilaborce region as written in the Korzár Horný Zemplín daily.
Historians and monument preservationists were inspired to name these cemeteries as national monuments seven years ago during the 100 year anniversary of the First World War.
From 2014 to 2018, the Regional Monument Board in Prešov, in cooperation with the Monument Board of the Slovak Republic and the Historical War Club Beskydy (KVH) chose 59 locations that fulfilled their criteria for cultural monuments.
