Collection(s)The mausoleum commemorates the Romanians who died in the heavy battles for the stop of the German army offensive towards Moldova in 1916, during the First World War. Built on the initiative of the local branch of the "Heroes Cult" Society with the material contribution of local people, the mausoleum was built by the Italian contractor De Nicolo between 1928 and 1935, following the plans of the Romanian architects D.I. Berechet and State Baloşin. Inside, the original painting belonging to artist Olga Greceanu, with the theme of heroism of the Romanian army and collaboration with the Allies, deteriorated because of climatic conditions and was replaced in the years 1980 - 1984 with "Murano" type mosaic. The museum rooms, the esplanade, the parade terrace at the base of the stairs, and execution of bas-relief were all built between 1980 and 1984. In the two large halls built in the monument visitors can know Romania's contribution to the First World War and the importance of fighting in the area in the fall of 1916 (the first room) and enter the atmosphere through diorama moment (in the second room). A large relief, the work of sculptor Radu Adrian from Câmpulung, has a fight scene framed by two texts that play fighters message from Mateiaş and response of the current generation. It is historical monument A grade.
