Soveja Heroes Mausoleum


This mausoleum was built in 1929, in the memory of those fallen in the battles of 1916 - 1918. It shelters the bones of Romanian and Russian soldiers in crypts. The marble plates in front of the crypts read the names of those identified. On the west side there is the common pit (ossuary), that shelters 2,000 bones. The monument looks like a stone fortification. A building behind the mausoleum houses a museum that presents photographs, documents and weaponry used by Romanian soldiers during the World War I battles.
