This Soviet-era war memorial is on a hill overlooking the city of Bratislava. I believe there is an infrequent bus service, but I walked up there. The tall monument visible from the city below dominates the memorial gardens; but there are also statues evocative of...More

Slavín is a huge cemetery located above Bratislava. It is the only official cemetery for almost 7,000 Soviets soldiers who died during the second world war. Worth doing for the poignancy.

This is the eastern view on the end of WW2 and far from making a westerner suspect russian bias it is amazing, breathtaking and credible. If you do more than 12 hours in Bratislava and don't get up to Slavin you have missed out.

Long way straight to the top, worth it. Best view on the city (together with Kamzik and bridge SNP), especially at the sunset time.

Nice walk up to and around the monument. Great views of the city and surrounding suburbs. The walk up was through a mixture of houses - old and new.

It's well worth visiting the very well kept Slavonic memorial and cemetery, it's very peaceful up there and you can also enjoy the great views of the city below. It's a steep walk especially in the sunshine- we opted to take the 203 bus from...More
