If you can, drive or take the bus up to Slavin - it's quite a hike up otherwise as it occupies the highest point in the city, overlooking even the castle. A memorial to 5.000+ young soldiers who died liberating the city from the Nazis...More

You should get there! It is not a fun place to go to, but definitely worth it. If not for the sake of history, then at lest for the view. On a clear day, you can see the biggest portion of Bratislava from there.

I strongly recommend you to walk up to the memorial by foot. You'll be so happy to finally reach it that the experience is even greater. The view from up there is incredible and it is not as crowded as other places in Bratislava since...More

This is certainly worth a visit, although it is quite a climb. It is a memorial to those 6ooo young Russian soldiers who sacrificed their lives to free Hungary. Free them what ? I know into communism for 40 years ! But these 17 and...More

Interesting memorial to nearly 7,000 Soviet soldiers who fell while liberating Bratislava during World War II. There is also a great view of Bratislava from this location.

Anyone who has any interest or appreciation for the history of this area would find this worthwhile. The views from the top are amazing and the sheer scale of the monument is incredible. The inscribed names really put into perspective the amount of people who...More

You can see it from most angles when being in Bratislava. The Slavin monument houses the graves of 7000 Russian soldiers and acts as a memorial to them who lost their lives while liberating Bratislava. Be prepared to climb some steep stairs. Unfortunately, it is...More

A nice place to visit in the evening to see the view of night time Bratislava. The monument is also interesting to see. Quiet place.
