Entrance costs €6.50, but is free of charge if you eat in the restaurant.
Slavn monumentOn the top of the hill behind the castle, overlooking the entire city. This is a monument in memory of Soviet casualties in the liberation battle of Bratislava in World War II.

On warm nights it's a very romantic place, allowing you to sit in the shadows of the monument and look at the traffic below. To get there, take trolleybus no. 203 from Hodovo nmestie (in front of the Presidential Palace) in the direction Bdkov and get off in 9 minutes at the last stop, then walk 500 m along Star vinrska and then Paickho streets.
