Devin Castle - Review
Located at the confluence of the Danube and the Morava rivers, the Devin Castle dates back to the pre-historic era. Known for proving as a strong structure for the city’s defense mechanism from the early 1st century right up to 1809 when Napoleon’s army destroyed the Castle, today, the place serves as an icon for Bratislava’s intense war history.

Devin Castle, Bratislava Reviews
What an experience this was! The area is quite big with several different exhibitions throughout the place. The views are to die for! Not just from the top of the castle, looking out on the Danube with Austria just across it, but also when turning your head and checking the mountains behind the castle. A lovely girl also showed us a bunch of different weapons from different ages and told us which ones could have been found in the area. Devín is definitely a must if you are in Bratislava.
Absolutely fantastic place and a must visit when in Bratislava. Amazing views from the top. Get the 28 bus from the city centre for just over 1 euro - but don't forget to buy your return also as there are no ticket machines at the castle
If you're in Bratislava it is definitely worth catching a bus to visit Devin Castle. Nicely preserved and easy to walk around. Good views of the river to watch the passing boats. It was quiet when we visited which made it a peaceful experience.
Dilapidated ruins on the edge of the Danube overlooking Slovakia and Austria. Big grounds, a cute supporting town/community and some amazing sites. If you are in Bratislava just grab the short return bus and enjoy your day. We found small queues due to only one booth but it was quick and easy.
Very nice site to discover near Bratislava. We suggest to go there by bike, which took us about 1h30' from the location store in the city centre (stopping frequently to take pictures) and a bit less to return home. From the top of the ruins you will have an astonishing view of the river Danube and the surrounding forests and villages.
