Slavín Monument

Slavín Monument
A mighty Soviet war memorial and graveyard on Slavín hill to the north of the city centre. Completed in 1960, marking the 15th anniversary of Bratislava's liberation from the Nazis, the 7,000 Red Army soldiers who lost their lives in the struggle for the city are remembered in inimitable Soviet style: 40 metres of granite thrusting skyward, supporting a statue of a soldier crushing a swastika beneath his boot.
