Slavín is a memorial monument and military cemetery in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. It is the burial ground of thousands of Soviet Army soldiers who fell during World War II while liberating the city in April 1945 from the occupying German Wehrmacht units and the remaining Slovak troops who supported the clero-fascist Tiso government. It is situated on a hill amidst a rich villa quarter of the capital and embassy residences close to the centre of Bratislava.

It was constructed between 1957 and 1960 on the site of a field cemetery, and opened on April 3, 1960 on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the city's liberation. The monument was constructed similar in kind to the Palace of Culture and Science in Stalinist architectural style. In 1961 it was declared a National Cultural Monument. Its designer was Ján Svetlík.

I like a lot the old town. Is medieval? I though thaT Bratislava was destroyed completely in WWII and the city was new.

Is the communist platelnaks towns already rebuilded? I see the photos and this houses seems good!

The locals should know the best answer.
But for, as a foreigner, and without many infos about the city, it looked really nice

The medieval city center survived the war almost untouched, only a few building were hit during two bombings in 1944. However, one third of the center was demolished by communists because of construction of SNP bridge (UFO bridge).

The paneláks are getting new facades, but their demolishing is unlikely in next few decades, as most of the population lives in them.

charming old section of the city....
Also, I like the changing skyline - a contrast of the old and the modern buildings.

As someone already said, an underrated city for sure. Bratislava looks great. A nice mix of old and new.
