The Monument to the Fallen in the First World War, Giraltovce

The sculpture of a lying lion. The sculpture of the lying lion on a stone pedestal was created by sculptor Felix Faragó. The monument was unveiled on August 25, 1918 before the establishment of the first Czechoslovakia. At that time, the lion had its head turned to the east, but after the establishment of the first Czechoslovakia, its position changed – it faces the west. There is a marble plaque next to the statue with a Hungarian inscription with the following translation: “Heroic sons who shed blood in the war. Thank you for fighting and saving us from the enemy troops”.
