    This is the memorial dedicated to the liberation of Slovakia from the Nazis. It's really nice and impressive, there are also several graves of Soviet soldiers who fell liberating the country. Is definitely worth seeing, which can be reached by bus or with a brisk walk.

    It's military cemetery with great view over the Bratislava new town. Usually, there is not that many people here, so you can use it also for "romantic" walk after the sunset..:)  more »
