Slavin, Bratislava

Slavin, also designated by the National Cultural Monument, was erected in 1960 to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the liberation of Bratislava in the Second World War.

Slavin is a powerful memorial and cemetery for the 6845 Soviet soldiers who fell when liberating the city of Bratislava at the end of World War II in April 1945. It was designed by Jan Svetlik.
The site includes:

A big staircase
Around the base of the monument are names of the Slovak towns and the dates when they were liberated by the Red Army.

There are a few buses that will take you there in just 15 minutes, you should ask in your hotel. Also, the tickets cost only 0.50eur! The one that I took (can’t remember which one now) left me right in front of the memorial site and I have to say that the driver and all the passengers were really nice!
