  • Great view of the city and nice place to visit. Enjoy the walk/trek. :)
  • A moving tribute to the more than 7,000 Soviet soldiers who died liberating Bratislava. Beautiful architecture and breathtaking views of the city.
  • Large and quiet place. It's not too bad but I was expecting a better view over the city.
  • Really appreciate this historical monument. It has a great atmosphere. It's a lovely and romantic place with amazing view to all Bratislava
  • This monument commemorates Red Army soldiers who fought in Slovakia during WWII. It's huge and in the style soviet architecture. Located on a hill that dominate the city, it allows a full view of the city. It should be 15 minutes on foot from the central station.
