The memorial itself is incorporated into a military cemetery, which crosses the colonnade with bronze plates bearing the names of 1 265 fallen members of the first Czechoslovak. Army Corps. The neighborhood is the installation of a military open-air museum. The nearby forests hide the preserved bunkers.

Part of the area is also a lookout tower, from which visitors can see a wide area of Slovak and Polish territory - the scene of fighting during the Carpathian-Dukla operation.
