Pay your respects to some of Bratislava's liberators at Slavin War Memorial, a memorial monument and burial ground dedicated to the Soviet Army soldiers killed during the liberation of Slovakia's capital in World War II. Opened in 1960, the cemetery has six mass graves and 278 individual graves. The Stalinist-style memorial dominates the surrounding park with its 39.5 m (130 ft) obelisk topped by an 11 m (36 ft) sculpture of a Soviet soldier waving a flag.

  • After a long time we decided to take a stroll on the ist Slavin. Navigation a bit failed, finally we put the intuiting, parking is not quite easy, but we found a place. The output of the stairs for about 2-year diet easily manageable with the help of a parent. Very nice view and nice weather guaranteed an amazing feel of this place. Although, there is a feel good.

  • 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.
