This cemetery is located at the Krekenavos gatve. About 200-300 Soviet soldiers are buried here in individually marked graves with the names in both Russian and Lithuanian. These men were killed in and around Panevezys. In the middle of the cemetery is a monument with a memorial stone. The rows of graves are located on the left and right of the monument. At the far left is a wall with names of perished Lithuanian citizens.
