Why to visit Devín castle and its surroundings
Devín is a picturesque place located 10 kilometers west of Bratislava city centre. Devín castle ruin proudly standing above the confluence of the Danube and Morava rivers is the site being a witness of history since thousands years ago. Devín has a tradition of making (not only currant) wine, steppe-like ecosystems with natural sand rocks, abandoned military base hidden in the Carpathian forests – all this creates a must-do destination during your stay in Bratislava.
“A guided tour by Authentic Slovakia in a clapped-out Cold War Skoda – “the crappiest vehicle in Slovakia” – is one idiosyncratic way to see some of Bratislava’s twentieth-century landmarks.”
