The monument itself is both impressive and emotional. It is very well maintained. The views from it are stunning and the walk to it is fascinating, past many embassies and lavish-looking private homes. Could easily have missed this and very glad we didn't.

I read the other reviews prior to attending today and was expecting quite a lot. Unfortunately the views across the city are very much hampered by numerous trees on all sides. There are a few gaps on the east side but definitely not worth going...More

I’m so glad we visited Slavin. Very rich in history and moving experience. I cannot wait to get home and read up more on this.

The monument for the fallen Russian soldiers in Bratislava is an excellent reminder for future generations what are the consequences of war. Thank you Slovakia for preserving this exceptional reminder. May they all rest in peace.

Beautiful monument worth visiting! It has a great view of the city-not the best- and you can have a great walk through the monument and the little forest it has around. Better go on a visit there in the late afternoon so that you can...More

Something good as the reminder of the past how wars create so many lost of lives as the result of a few leaders with their ambitious and insane ideas. Anyway, this is now a memorial site of thousands of Soviet Army soldiers who died when...More

Situated on a hill above the city this is not only a memorial but the last resting place of the thousands of Russian soldiers who fell in the battle for Bratislava. The memorial is an enormous column surmounted by a soldier standing on a swastika....More

I really like the way how the Soviets are honouring their heroes and it's a nice quiet place from where you can enjoy in the good panoramic views too.
