There are any monuments raised in the honour of the Romanian soldiers who died in the above mentioned countries during WWII? If yes, who's taking care of these monuments ?

I have found only a few, but there are probably more:
Slovakia: Kromeriz, Zvolen (a Romanian cemetery)
Hungary: Budapest, Debrecen, Hajduboszormeny, Oroshaza, Miskolc, Gyor, Megyaszo, Nyiregyhaza, Tiszakecske
Austria: I think there is one monument at Schrick.

Thank you for your answer!

I know it is not the thread... What about the Romanian cemeteries in Russia... Are still in place or the cemeteries were "erased"... I saw a picture in "Armata Romana in al doilea Razboi mondial" - Romanian Army in WWII, editura Meridiane a picture about a monument near Odessa... What happened with the monument and with the cemetery???
I saw that in Western Europe you may find German cemeteries, American, British, etc... What is the situation in Russia and Eastern Europe (Romania, Hungary, Poland, etc)?

I would assume the same happened to German and Hungarian cemeteries?

Most likely. They were also enemies of the Soviet Union.

Recently, there was a large Hungarian military cemetery established at Rudkino, 20 km near Voronezh, close to the Don River, paid by from the Russian Federation's debt to Hungary. There is a series of commemorative plates in the cemetery, recording the name of 63,000 Hungarian soldiers who fell in the region.
Here is an article (in Hungarian) and a photo: http://www.magyarhirlap.hu/cikk.php?cikk=62174
However, the local Governor prohibited the official opening of the cemetery, citing the adversity of local people to a cemetery commemorating "Fascist" soldiers.

Hard to belive that we can find such a "fascist" cemetery in Romania. Even the tombs of ARR pilots who was shuted down by americans around Ploiesti wasnt official "honorated" and they wasn t considerated "heroes" by comunist rullers. So ... we just can say REST IN PEACE for all of them ...

In Bistrita there are German and Hungarian soldiers berried in the cemetery (I do not know exactely if they were victims of WWI or WWII, maybe both). There is no official cemetery but there are some soldiers berried... No one tried to remove the traces of those tombs during communism...

As I remember, before the '80s, in the Oradea cemetery, near the Romanian and Soviet WWII heroe's thombs, there were the German and Hungarian military cemeteries. In this period they were demolished to take place for the extending civil cemetery.
The same happened with the WWI military cemetery, where now there are the thombs of the Romanian Army veterans. A cynic and strange way to make "face-lift" to the history...

Poland, North Part, near Tuchola town, there is cementary and monument of soldiers who die there during WW1. They were POW and die from illneses. In the camp were Russians and Romanian soldiers (maybe also some British and Canadian). In the forest I found Romanian buttons made in Bucaresti.
