Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I walked here from the old town. Takes around 25-30 mins to get there. Really worthwhile visit and you get a lovely view of Bratislava

Well worth the walk, or ride up to the memorial. Imposing architecture to honour the sacrifices from that time. Set outside the centre it is possible to walk (as we did) to the memorial and grounds though be prepared for some sharp inclines! The walk took us past some beautiful houses in what appeared to be a prosperous part of the city.

Well worth taking the time if you are visiting Bratislava.

Medicore view. You may visit if there is not much else to see. Climbing all the way up is doable but tiring. It's better to ride a bus.

This memorial, thought a bit of a walk to get to, is definitely worth visiting. There are a series of individual graves as well as a few mass graves and overall the memorial is very moving and well laid out. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone visiting Bratislava.

Great walk up from the old center through a cozy neighborhood. Very good views. A nicely done memorial for those who lost their lives in World War 2.

Impressive views and interesting to see history from the Russian point-of-view. Worth a visit if you’re in Bratislava

This impressive monument is situated on the top of a hill just about a 25min walk from the old town, this does consist of some steep hills and a lot of steps!

However once at the top the views over Bratislava are amazing and the WW2 monument is amazing.

We were lucky enough to arrive between 2 and 4pm when the doors were open and we could go inside, the ceiling is very impressive.

Yhe grounds are mass graves with marked headstones on the solo graves and a wall of remberance for all the others who lost their lives.

There are no toilets or refreshments available so plan ahead!

The views from the area are amazing. This is a Russian War Memorial. It celebrates Russians freeing the country from Germany. Sadly they didn’t actually free anyone. So it’s more of Russia patting itself on the back after the war. Seems like a propaganda display on a grand scale. But the views are great.

The only reason I am giving out four stars is the difficulty to get there otherwise it is a spectacular memorial dedicated to Russian soldiers who liberated Slovakia during the second world war. You'll have to take a bus with the huge electrical wires - so called troli-bus which was fun.

A scenic monument that plays an important part in Slovakia’s past. Great views from the top too with Hungary and Austria in the distance.
