The area of the park was a place where the war was fought from September 1914 to May 1915. Main fights took place around Uzhotskyi Pass and the mountains in the northern part of the park. There is a WWI cemetery (and a memorial) at the Uzhotskyi Pass – 363 Russian and Austro-Hungarian soldiers are buried there. There is another WWI cemetery at the Cheremkha mountain (1130 m), where over 650 soldiers (primarily Hungarian) rest in peace. In total there are over 20 cemeteries and there are also some wartime graves located at village cemeteries.
