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.

    This statue is near the main square so you do not need to go looking for it , surprisingly quite tall as I tried to fit my head under the hat

    You will end up on the bench and have your picture taken - that much is certain. This and the manhole statue were two of the best. All are located in the central Old Town. Don’t get too relaxed on the bench - other tourists were waiting in line to have their pictures taken.

    This statue was on the way as I passed by. I didn’t go looking for it but it was nice. I always thought Hans Christen Anderson was Dutch so I don’t know why it was here

    Pur guide made this claim because there were about 6,000 graves next to the Danube River. As the river level rose, they moved all graves to higher ground except for 23 (one of which is Schreiber one of the famous Jewish Rabbis).

    This was an impressive bronze sculpture on the climb to the castle. There was no sign to be found but took a pic anyway. I was grateful to discover her bavkstory on Trip Advisor!

    Cool statue of a heralded king, well-seen from a few angles (whether you're looking at it from behind, and the Danube, UFO, and city are behind it; or you're looking at it head-on, and the castle is behind it).

    What an impressive statue and what away to commemorate this man. The statue sits on the banks of the Danube close to the Eurovea shopping centre. It is huge statue of the man. Worth a visit.

    This monument is a memorial commemorating the liberation of Bratislava by the Red Army on 4 April 1945, specifically by the forces of the 2nd Ukrainian Front in the Bratislava–Brno Offensive.

    The monument features a pedestal of polished red granite in a triangular shape tapering at the top and forming a flat square area that has a sculpture of Victoria depicting walking uphill with her right hand outstretched and holding out an olive branch.

    I like this monument for the way it has a sense of movement and expression of joy at the liberation of the city.

    If you visit Devin Castle than you can't really miss this monument!

    Dedicated to those who died in the area during the cold war/iron curtain era.

    Interesting history is all around this area.

    The story of this lion dates back to the time when Euro was introduced. Some people say it's one of the three largest lions in the world made of tyre material.

    Large statue featuring someone not holding a weapon for once (as those statues seem plentiful in Bratislava). Yes, I know the statue is of a poet, so of course he'd be holding a pen, but it was noteworthy enough to make me chortle.

    This is on one end of the town in a little square by the church. I didn’t get the statue. The topic is very sad and it seems like it’s a good idea to remember it but this was hard to understand.
