A solemn memorial set in beautiful grounds with great views over the city. Not that far a walk up to it when you know where you're going but do bring plenty of water as I made the mistake of walking up to it in 30°...More

Situated on a hill above the city this is not only a memorial but the last resting place of the thousands of Russian soldiers who fell in the battle for Bratislava. The memorial is an enormous column surmounted by a soldier standing on a swastika....More

I really like the way how the Soviets are honouring their heroes and it's a nice quiet place from where you can enjoy in the good panoramic views too.

The monument and areas are well looked after and the views from the top are good, a fair few steps to get you up there.

You can walk up here from the train station-20-30 min uphill. Taking into the consideration the aftermath of the liberation of this country in 1945, later to be followed by the process of Sovietization, it's worth a look. Built in 1960 it's typical of other...More

There are tomb stones on the grounds of some who died defending Slovakia. The memorial is nicely done, albeit for those who are handicapped there are quite a few steps.
