Set on the same hill as Bratislava Castle overlooking the city, this national monument is a tribute to the soldiers who died while liberating the city during WWII. Every April 4th there's a festive celebration to honor the fallen. The views from this monument are spectacular so don't forget your camera.

This memorial really is a must see for visitors to Bratislava, as it’s an important part of the city’s history. When I made the climb up here it was very quiet and peaceful, the perfect place for reflection. The monument is dedicated to the soviet soldiers who helped liberate Bratislava from Nazi occupation during World War Two. It is located in an area called Malé Karpaty, which can be reached from the centre by bus, and is at a very high point, so you also get great panoramic views across the city.

Located on top of Malé Karpaty hill behind Bratislava Castle, this memorial to the Soviet soldiers who died in the liberation battle of Bratislava during WWII overlooks the entire city. Easily accessible by trolleybus, it's one of the can't-miss landmarks of Central Europe.

Είναι ένα μνημείο που αξίζει να επισκεφτεί κανείς. Το ίδιο το μνημείο είναι πολύ εντυπωσιακό, αλλά και η τοποθεσία του προσφέρει πολύ ωραία θέα. Απαιτεί όμως, αρκετό περπάτημα σε έναν ανηφορικό δρόμο, που ειδικά αν είναι κρύα η μέρα είναι ακόμα πιο κουραστικός. Κατά τ’ άλλα είναι ένα ενδιαφέρον μνημείο αφιερωμένο στους Σοβιετικούς στρατιώτες που σκοτώθηκαν κατά την απελευθέρωση της πόλης από τους Ναζί. Ο χώρος γύρω είναι καταπράσινος και αν προσέξετε στις πέτρες είναι χαραγμένα τα ονόματα των στρατιωτών.
