Slavín Monument in Bratislava

This modern landmark of Bratislava, standing in the commemorative cemetery of the Red Army on the hill above the city, was built according to the design of architect Ján Svetlík in 1960. The main entrance to the grounds is through a broad boarding staircase. On its axis, three graded sections of the cemetery gradually open up, with the climax taking shape in the majestic monument. The sculptural decoration of the central section of the extensive grounds takes its subjects from the wartime and particularly from victory-celebrating motifs. It comes from the sculpture studios of Ladislav Snopko, Ján Kulich, Tibor Bártfay, Rudolf Pribiš and Alexander Trizuljak.
